    I prepped by living 220mi inland. Worked great!

    Get any UPS off the floor and unplugged, before you turn off the electricity at the first sign of water encroachment.

    When my house flooded in Allison, and before the water got past the receptacles, I cut off the electricity/main service panel. Fine and good ... except never thought about uplugging the 4 heavy duty server UPS' on the floor of the server closet, FIRST.

    Yep ... they still worked under water, much too well, as designed.
    Getting them out/off was not much fun in the dark, in knee deep water ...

    Yes I always unplug the UPS's and power strips if I'm going to leave for flooding.

    Years ago, being aware of brick porosity, I used a roller with long extension to apply Thompsons Water Seal to the house brick. It was a LONG time ago and found out during Harvey that it pooped out. Gotta re-apply TWS to the brick!
