The break in the rain has people across the North State scrambling to cleanup before the wet weather begins again.
Action News reporter Megan McMann met with some people in the community of Nord, who say they've been through this before but this time the damage is a lot worse.
"Today we pretty much called in sick ... cleaning the house. I would rather be at work than cleaning this," said resident Di Lor Monday morning.
Sunday nearby Mud Creek spilled over into orchards, and then spilled into these living rooms..
"Trying to hose down everything try to sanitize and clean the inside later on," said Lor.
And there is certainly a lot to clean here... four to five inches of water got inside... and left the homeowners scrambling to try and save their things.
When the flooding started, Lor and her brother-in-law frantically drove their smaller cars to higher ground at Shasta Elementary School.
Ker Lee said, "By the time we got back the water was almost waist high."
The family lost 20 chickens in the rain. They say they've been through this before. Their home flooded back in 2007 but say this time its worse.
So now it's now a race against time as more wet weather is on the way.
"Nothing you can do about mother nature," said Lee.###
