The first step is the clean up, but then comes the claims process with insurance companies.
"With something like this, as of now we've seen hundreds of claims," said Kristin Francy of State Farm Insurance.
And that's on top of the spike in claims filed from last month's storm.
"One of the main things we try to remind people, when they're going through these claims processes, is to make sure you document everything," Francy said. "Take pictures, so if for any reason an adjustor isn't able to be right there immediately, we're able to see everything that's happened."

The Insurance Information Institute estimates a quarter of all flood claims come from outside designated zones.
"Know that there are agents you can call if you have questions when you have a claim," Francy said. "Or if there's coverage - trees calling, debris flying, floods that you have someone to go to."
