A law firm acting for residents who were flooded when a super-storm dumped torrential rain north of Brisbane in May says it will be talking to the Queensland Government about buying back flood-affected houses.
Up to 100 homes in Deception Bay, Rothwell and Mango Hill, were inundated in the May 1 deluge, which dumped up to 360 millimetres of rain in less than 24 hours.
About 100 residents gathered at a community meeting at North Lakes at 6:30pm (AEST) to discuss a potential class action.
The State Government launched its own investigation and is waiting on a report to determine whether construction on a nearby Moreton Bay rail link caused the homes to be flooded.
A preliminary hydrologist's report, commissioned by Shine Lawyers, indicated works related to the rail link had contributed to the inundation of homes.
That report found the construction of an embankment and concrete barriers at the Moreton Bay Rail Link may have impeded the drainage of storm water, compounding the flooding of nearby homes.
