They do have renters insurance but did not add Back-up of sewers and drains to their coverage :(

Hmmm...you didn't say the flood was because of back-up of sewers and drains. I'm curious as to whose responsibility this is. If this was a floor from outside, it would definitely not be the landlord's responsibility, but I wonder if the fact that it was a problem with the plumbing would change that.

    Al, when towns have alot of flooding and the sewer system gets overwhelmed, that extra can back up into homes.

    During Hurricane Irene two years ago, my town had sever e flooding and the town's sewer system became flooded as well. Places that had never ever flooded before, flooded. For about a day, the town asked residents to refrain from flushing toilets unit the flood waters receded a bit and high tide was over. If you did flush, you were taking a chance of it coming back if that breaking point had been reached within the system.

    My understanding of the flooding in the Chicago areas was severe and what a LL or homeowner could do to prevent internal flooding would be limited with that type of senario, esp if flooding was never an issue before.
