are we forgetting about the people in barberton that were flooded out?

i had 5 ft of water in my basement, and my foundation wall collapsed, the past week has been a nightmare to say the least. were is the help? no one is taking resposibility for the storm sewers over flowing. we can't get flood insurance because 17th st in barberton is not a flood zone. were is the help from the city or from fema? is there any help out there?
