inundation

Here is my best explanation:

'flooding' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'one sister not ida affected' is the wordplay.
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).
'sister' becomes 'nun' (I've seen this before).
'affected' is an anagram indicator.
'not'+'ida'='notida'
'notida' is an anagram of 'dation'.
'i'+'nun'+'dation'='INUNDATION'

'with' is the link.
