    Thanks for asking. Personally, we are good as our house is high enough up. Some of our land was under water and some still is.We were stranded at our house for a few days until the water went down to open up the roads. There are a lot of roads still under water and ruined bridges & roads. Basically every road west of Omaha was flooded or had washouts, making travel extremely difficult in the eastern part of the state. Some cities became islands with no way out. I believe every lake housing development in this area had mandatory evacuations and some had to do overnight water rescues to get people out.The cost of repairs is going to be in the hundreds of millions I believe and will take years to recover. I think this flood will end up being worse than what had in 1993 and that one was pretty terrible. Currently, I think I-29 from Council Bluffs south is under water as well causing more travel issues.

At least he saw some loot, although it was apparently an annoyance.

    I think Kotaku also had a' 'issue' with the opening cinematic asking if people/user 'had a gun' after the police and society crumbled. In a game that is built around shooting guns, finding guns, and upgrading guns, that line was an issue?

    I don't get the demand for inserting politics in this franchise by some. AFAIK, it is all fictional politicians mentioned in the game and they aren't even a primary aspect. The first game came out in March 2016, so if it used real politicians wouldn't it be Obama they need to reference and not Trump?

    The game does have some collectibles talking about Mexico building a wall to keep the infection & infected Americans out; couldn't that be construed as inserting politics? I took it as a play or joke against Trump's request for a border wall. That was enough politics for me without going over the top. Even with it located in DC, no one is buying it hoping for political drivel besides some terrible reviewers and sites. If anything, based on community impressions, people seem pretty excited to see DC in ruins and not functioning politically.

    Glad to see you did not catch the worst of it. The images and videos of the floods were devastating to see.
