Dozens of homeowners have filed a federal class-action lawsuit against the City of Deltona over its alleged role in severe flooding following Hurricane Ian. The plaintiffs claim Deltona officials opened a dam in an effort to protect Deltona homes, and the decision resulted in the worst flooding the Stone Island area experienced in decades. Several neighbors were stranded in their homes for weeks. Many were brought food and other important items via canoe at the height of the flooding. Others weren’t able to return to their houses at all. There are over 40 people listed on the lawsuit, though some of them live under the same roof.
