Michael Brown searched his home on Saturday in hope of retrieving some of his family's belongings. When he returned, households items were still floating through the home in waist-high water.
He stumbled upon his wife's engagement ring floating in a jewelry box.
"My family's fine, nobody's hurt. That's the main thing because I think all this material stuff can be replaced," Brown told the Associated Press of his ordeal.
Brown said he is trying to keep a positive spirit during an emotional time.
