Hello. You likely have an electrical issue caused by the water from the hurricane. I would guess your first battery was still good, just drained because the flooding caused your electrical components to run while the vehicle is off. Get your vehicle inspected by a qualified professional, or if you have insurance on your vehicle, consult with your insurance company and have an adjuster determine the extent of the flood damage. A lot of times insurance companies will total flood-damaged vehicles because water surrounding your engine and electrical components can cause a lot of damage. If you need further help, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to inspect your electrical issue.
