Thousands of Queenslanders will find out today if they've won a class action over the state's devastating floods almost nine years ago. 
Close to seven thousand victims are suing S-E-Q Water and the government for mismanaging the Wivenhoe and Somerset Dams, by releasing water and flooding more homes than necessary. 
The decision will be made in the New South Wales Supreme Court.
