Image is a video still of my basement on 6/26/21. It took days for the sewage water to fully drain. You can see my dehumidifier (white box with tube coming out of it) laying on it's side on the floor. It had been sitting on a table 3' off the floor. The water got so high it floated off the table it was on. The table also floated across the basement along with all the other objects stored in the basement.
