They were among the worst-hit suburbs on the Gold Coast according to claims data from Suncorp Insurance, naming Jimboomba, Tamborine and Helensvale to round out the top five.
There were 1,416 damage claims made to the insurer following storms between October 2017 and February 2018.
With more storms expected across the weekend the company is encouraging us to prepare now.
