    Well let me start off by saying, I am flooded and do NOT live by the bayou. I was SHOCKED to find my home (husband and 3 kids) stuff under water. We have had storms before, but never a flood like this one. Just so you know, unless you have flood insurance, you are basically without. I have lived in this area all my life and where I am, I would of NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD NEED FLOOD INSURANCED…. Boy was I wrong…. I have a 16 year old male , a 14 year old male and a 8 year old female. The truck the 16 year old uses was under salt water and is no longer any good. I have 3 brothers all in the same area and we lost everything. I did ( and so did they) got some things out so we would have something to wear as we destroy ou homes. I had fish in my yard and I do not live near a bayou or a stream… I was in total surprised at all the fish. I do not have flood insurance and they are saying it was a flood, which it was NOT. A flood is from rain, this was from the surge of hurricane Ike. Oh well, we will deal with it as it arrives…..
