Intense rain causes flooding around my A/C unit

Summer is always a wet season. We have a great deal of humidity, and that causes a lot of moisture in the air and in the clouds. We have lots of rain, and there is usually an afternoon shower everyday. Even though the rain usually only lasts for a few short minutes, sometimes that downpour can leave a huge puddle of rain. Last week it rained every single day. There was a hurricane off the coast and we received a lot of rain from the outer bands. The wind wasn’t terrible, but the rain was strong, fierce and steady. It rained all day on Monday and Tuesday. When my wife and I woke up on Wednesday morning, the bottom of the AC unit was covered in water. The water was almost high enough to cover some of the metal. My wife and I were worried that the water would cause severe damage to the AC unit. I decided to contact our HVAC provider and ask a few questions. I explained that the water was starting to reach the AC unit. The HVAC provider told us not to worry. The AC unit is made to withstand lots of rain, snow, and other elements. The rain continued all through Wednesday and half of Thursday. When it finally stopped coming down, our AC unit was under 7 in of water. Thankfully, it didn’t take very long for all of the water to recede. Once the rain stopped coming down, all of the water eventually dissipated. My wife and I were worried that the AC unit would incur some damage, but it still works perfectly fine.
