There could be any and all types of germs an diseases in that water so watch out for any sighns!!!! Be careful
I think it depends on your immune system and if you have any cuts or abrasions.
I wouldn't consider you at risk for getting anything like Ebola :) I think you're safe - don't sweat it!
Rain washes away dirt and grime which harbor bacteria and viruses fairly well.
Again, don't worry about it.
I agree with just about everyone. When excess rainwater floods into drainage areas, etc. many people believe that the water goes to a purification center. It does not! It goes directly back into our lakes and rivers and anything in that water comes in direct contact with you. This includes not only raw sewage but anything persons may have disposed of in drainage grates such as motor oil, anti freeze, lawn chemicals, animal feces, you get the picture. Just cleanse yourself thoroughly and discourage others, especially children from walking or playing in backed up rain water.
You might contact your local health dept. as the Centers for Disease Control says the risk is very high for a variety of water borne diseases.
