SEVERAL businesses at Kings Meadows were again flooded in yesterday's deluge.
Kings Meadows Seafood was among them, although owner Dimitri Amerikanos said the flooding was worse on Tuesday and Wednesday, when Launceston recorded 52 millimetres of rain.
But he still had many family members on hand yesterday to help clean up after another deluge.
Floods hit his business about midday.
Mr Amerikanos said it was about the fifth time his store had been flooded.
"Again, there was so much water," he said.
"We were lucky being here, because we did not open until 12 o'clock.
"We were getting water out and people were coming in."
Mr Amerikanos estimated the cost to his business was up to $500, but he said he was fortunate compared with nearby businesses.
"We lost some stock, but for businesses on both sides of us, one lost all their carpet and cupboards," he said.
"On the other side of us, it's the same situation.
"You would lose business and time.
"With the bank across the street, it's the same thing.
"We are all in the same boat."
Mr Amerikanos said about the same number of Hobart Road shops were flooded as earlier in the week, when about 18 businesses needed emergency help.
He said the drainage problem needed to be rectified.
A Launceston City Council spokesman said the temporary drainage pipes laid in the Hobart Road gutters late yesterday would be removed once the rain eased.
