How many instruments were powered when it happened ?

As quickly as possible, go buy or rent one of these beast, and dry all the instruments you can open up (it's a good long term investment) :

This blows air at a very high pressure, without damaging the PCBs / Componments of your hardware. This is always used by IT professionnals to dust of PCs quickly and efficiently.

Dooooh...reading this pains me enough to pull me out of lurker status and offer my condolences.

Sorry to hear about the damage and losses. Hopefully some good fortune is headed your way in the near future to balance things out.

Best of luck recovering what you can.

I've had some flood experience as well (when I was a kid our basement got flooded) and if your equipment was not operating at the time it may be salvageable (my dad was able to get most of the electronic gear working over time). I've never had records that have been soaked though, are you sure those can't be salvaged? I feel your pain and wish you good luck with your salvage efforts.

Alot of my stuff got wet when a storm blew threw here a few years back. Guess what? After letting it sit for a couple of weeks every single piece powered back up.


Good Luck I'm sure all is not lost.

Sorry I don't know a remedy for records though.
