There is not much left there in the little nuc It might make it if they ship it to Florida so it can start raising brood and bees now.
If it were me I'd plan to re-locate the apiary on higher ground, looking for a new location. Severe storm surges are pretty certain to happen again there, since world sea level is rising each year now with the melting of the arctic ice caps. Look what's happening in Venice, Italy.
Actually I suspect their plan would have worked Omie if they had added several layers of pallets below the hives and then added the concrete blocks.
This sort of thing just happens, it just may be a natural tendency of man and bees. Man appreciate the constant water and soil fertility of the low lands so he moves bees there.... then a freak storm pops up and washes everything away. One year the floating bee hives are in New York and the next year California... at least one year it occurred here and I had 30 or so nucs wash down a little creek where I had never seen water flow before. We did have a rain storm that produced 7 to 13 inch in a matter of hours that flooded at least one town near by that had never flooded before.
