Angry gas furnace is driving me crazy

i have a honeywell upflow gas furnace that is not in the best spot in the basement. the previous owners put it in the basement and because its a
dirt floor basement we often have a flood down there. despite the sump
pumps best efforts, we had about a foot of h2o surrounding the furnace a week or so ago. since then i cannot get the furnace to restart. i can now
get the blower to move but i have to do that manually. the pilot ignites but
not there is this buzzing sound that starts and stops but nothing runs

what can i do to make the stupid thing start, im freezing!!!

call a pro

your homeowners ins. should cover it. sounds like fan motor/capacitor or possibly bad circuit board

humidity not even water will kill electronic equipment, to think its sitting in water is a priority problem! But, I think that its hard to remember the mission was to drain the pond when your up to your butt in alligators! Good luck......
