One Flagstone man, who did not want to be named, said his driveway was a deluge of water.

"We had a river of water coming down our driveway and front yard," the man, who lives on Bushman Drive, said.

"I was madly trying to divert the water away but it was futile."

He said he would approach council to speak about the water run-off.

"I am going to have a chat with Nat Wilcox about drainage off Bushman Dr into our property," the man said.

"It was insane how much water we got off the road and nature strip. It was an absolute river."

He said it was the most serious situation he had seen at his property.

"[There has been] nothing that bad since we have lived here," the man said.

"I know the floods were bad but this was different as it was a lot of rain in a very short time."
