The torrential rain we had overnight on December 30 apparently overwhelmed the storm drain at the end of our street and caused the flooding you see here. The inside of the garage took some water, but no real issue there, or anywhere else in the house.

However, I was a bit concerned about the race car parked out front -- there was water inside the car. The water inside the car turned out not to be an issue, but the throw-out bearing got contaminated with dirt/grit from the flood waters so needed to be replaced.

Pictures of what the inside of the car looked like after the water drained out.
