Help preserving guns in a gun safe when basement floor is flooded

Heavy rains recently flooded our basement, and however the water got in, it told its friends. Comparatively modest rain has continued to get in, creating an almost chronically wet floor. We have a dehumidifier and two fans going but the air is dank.

I have a "Goldenrod" and some "Super VCI plugs" in the safe. These are marginal to begin with, but I haven't had this problem before.
I doubt either one can deal with the air exchange that takes place when opening the door.

I'm half tempted to spray everything with LPS2. Just kidding. Maybe.

Perhaps a couple pounds of absorbent packs?
It's not that I have a large collection, but I don't know of anyone nearby who could take what I have for a while. One is a Class III weapon and can't go anyway.

Well...the last couple days here have had me looking for Noah and green alligators and long neck geese. 6 inches of rain will find any weakness in foundations. It found a couple in my basement. Harkrader is your basement finished/carpeted ? Are there foundation cracks ? Is water coming up through the floor ? I have had to do some crack repairs here . My safe is not in the basement though. i am using products from This supplier. Read about some of the products they have for various water problems. Of course now that I have done repairs it probably wont rain again this summer ! Concrete Sealers | Basement Repair Products | RadonSeal
