Trouble is that the rain stops but the draining continues for a couple of days (my experience) and sometimes the dams have to be released due to the pressure, which can create a wave and flood it even faster.
Sounds like a lousy deal all the way around. Have you ever considered moving to a place on higher ground? We get just about the same amount of rain where we are and just a 1/2 inch in the street during the heaviest possible rains and then gone within a few minutes after it stops. Seems terrible to have to deal with the floods several times each rainy season.
