These pictures show the extent of the damage caused to the downstairs of the South Terrace property, where the water level reached above the front door.

Flora Storm and her boyfriend David Lee had been asleep downstairs when water started pouring through the letter box in their front door, before the door burst open and the water filled the downstairs and almost made its way to the upper floor.
