This answer depends on what area and the intensity of the flood. Many locations now have flood protection so hopefully may homes survive. However, even throughout the past, many homes are build in floodplains and zones where over-flooding would affect homes. Many people are less prone to relocate with flood possibilities because chances are that no flooding is more likely to happen.
If a house is built on an elevated platform or stilts then I has a higher chance of surviving a major flood. Similar homes can be found on the Atlantic Coast where hurricanes and high waves are an issue to be dealt with.
