While if it is a flood that destroyed your home, I guess it means the destruction of literally your house. Probably a collapse of a part of your house will eventually happen. Or it concerns your family that lives in that house.
It can be someone moving out or divorce of a couple in the house. While if it’s someone you know, for example, you have been having a hunch that your husband is cheating on you.
