GRAZIA De Michiel has lived in her Trevallyn home for 49 years and has only experienced flooding once before last weekend.
The Anthony Street property was inundated with water on Sunday after a culmination of rain last week.
Her home and neighbouring properties had to contend with flooded downstairs sections, resulting in damage to stored items.
Mrs De Michiel said it seemed that more work needed to be done on street drainage.
"You get upset with this sort of thing because you don't know why it is happening when it hasn't happened before," Mrs De Michiel said.
"Better drainage would help a lot."
