Over the weekend, more than 125 millimetres of rain fell on the community in central Newfoundland.
More than 200 residents have contacted municipal officials to report property damage.
A meeting Wednesday at the community's town hall heard from some residents who said flooding has become a bigger problem since an industrial park was built.
Claude House, a resident since 1970, says some of his neighbours can't sell their homes.
A municipal spokesman says the problem can be traced to the network storm water pipes beneath the ground that couldn't handle the deluge.
