Karyn, this is nothing to take casually. We've been through a major flood with 75ish homes flooded in our lake community and I had flooding on my property just about a month ago at our new ranch. 

Scary stuff. There are sandbags that you can buy that come as a small bag that inflates when water hits it, absorbing the water and getting large and heavy--something to look into for those who may want to curtail this happening! 

Good luck and stay safe.
