In this video, residents from the Brisbane suburb of Goodna explain the flood damage to their homes, frustrations over the refusal of insurance companies to pay out claims and their scepticism in the state government’s official inquiry into the disaster. An estimated 600 houses were flooded in the working-class suburb on January 13, many of them submerged above the roofline.
