AFAIK neither the verb or the homophonous noun have been used in a sentence.  While not elating directly, I did find this interesting quote from the {paq'batlh}:

  'Iw bIQtIqvo' toS SuvwI' yoH puH QaDDaq paw 
  The fearless warrior climbs out of the [river of]
   blood onto dry land. PB

Some flood (and hurricane/tornado) related vocabulary:

lIch 		pour (into/onto anything) (v)
qang 		pour from one container into another (v)
teb 		fill (v)
nIj 		leak (v)
vIH 		move, be in motion (v)

jev 		storm (v)
SIS 		rain (v)
Qom 		experience an earthquake or tremor (v)

yIQ 		be wet
QaD	 	be dry, be dried out

'eS 		be low (v)
jen 		be high (v)

SoD  		flood (n)
bIQ 		water (n)
bIQ'a' 	ocean (n)
bIQtIq 	river (n)
yu'egh 	wave (n)

SuS  		wind, breeze (n)

SuSHom  	wisp of air (n)
