A QUIET little suburban pocket in Delacombe turned into a nightmare on Friday night.Only this nightmare was recurring.Flash flooding tore through Banyule Drive about 9pm on Friday, leaving several houses severely damaged and possibly beyond repair.It was the second time in three weeks that a torrent of water and waste had rapidly flowed through the street.A handful of the houses at the end of the road were almost instantly flooded, some with water as high as 60 centimetres inside.Leigh and Joe Baker have lived in their family house for more than 20 years and until three weeks ago were living “happy, comfortable lives”.They had just started getting back on their feet from the previous flood when their home was again devastated by flash flooding on Friday.“Everything has just been wiped out now. It has almost ruined our lives,” Mrs Baker said .The couple live with their three children Paige, 24, Jordan, 21 and Eyden, 20.They are unsure as to whether they will ever be able to live in their house again or if it will have to be demolished.Their neighbours opposite are in a similar situation.Kieth and Leanne Westblade also watched their house become inundated with water only two weeks after they had begun the original recovery effort.A foul odour still plagues the house, as the water is believed to have travelled through the Latrobe Street saleyards.“It’s filthy. People were walking through yesterday vomiting. The house is unlivable, there’s no way we can live in it,” Mr Westblade said. Their next door neighbours appear to have copped the worst of the flash flooding.Shari and Les Waight haven’t lived in their house since it flooded three weeks ago.The latest flood reached 60 centimetres deep in their house and they lost nearly everything they owned.“If it’s not rotten or broken, it’s gone,” Ms Waight said.It is believed the drains at the end of Banyule Drive were far too narrow to contain the water, which caused it to swamp nearby houses.The deluge on Friday night also caused damage to nearby houses on Jasmine Drive and Royale Street, which run next to a minor spillway.Lumen Christi Primary School was also flooded for the third time since September last year.
