When the river (waters raise) overflows and flood the streets, its water sweep away everything in his path.

Might have other ways to say that, as well.

- carry away everything (in its path)

"Carried away everything of value as a flood carries away everything in its path.''
''Many people realize that a flood carries away everything you own, including what you need to begin clearing away the debris.''
