ROSEWOOD had the worst of the floods yesterday morning, with the community "breathing a sigh of relief" when flood waters didn't cause widespread damage.
Water had entered 10 homes by Monday morning , with heavy falls in excess of 200mm were recorded in the Rosewood area on Sunday.
Councillor David Pahlke said rather than being widespread, the heaviest of falls was localised to specific areas.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology figures Mulgowie, south of Laidley, recorded 210mm of rain on Sunday.
But Cr Pahlke said he has heard reports of rain fall reaching 600mm of rain.
"There was 20 inches of rain in the Mulgowie catchment. That's what a land owner told their daughter. I couldn't work out why there was so much flooding," he said.
"At this stage water has entered between six and 10 homes. One house had four inches of water at 4.30am. The road was cut at Guilfoyles Gully, it is as high as it was in the 2011 flood.
"With all the hype of yesterday they were expecting it to be a lot worse, they are breathing a sigh of relief."
