Storm Dennis, the combination of two storm centres over the Atlantic, caused rivers in Wales and Yorkshire to break their banks. Several towns, including York, and villages in South Wales were partially submerged by water.
When will Storm Dennis stop?
Four severe flood warnings are in place today in Eardiston, Little Hereford and Ashford Carbonel, Ludlow and Tenbury Wells and Burford.
There are still 274 flood warnings and 348 flood alerts in effect across England.
The red warning for rain in South Wales is no longer in effect.

In Scotland, 16 flood alerts and 17 flood warnings are in place.
There are two severe flood warnings in Wales – in Pontypridd and Aberdulais – along with 53 flood warnings and 51 flood alerts.
After today’s downpours, the weather looks to clear up as Storm Dennis weakens this evening.
However, there is still one wind weather warning in place for Monday.
In effect until 11am, the warning covers all of Northern Ireland, Scotland, the north of England and the west coast of England.
The Met Office said: “Some very strong winds are likely in association with Storm Dennis.
“Gusts of 50-60 mph are likely quite widely within the warning area for much of the period. Gusts of 70 mph are likely at times, more especially across western Scotland on Sunday afternoon and evening, as well as in association with heavy showers elsewhere.
“A separate swathe of 70-75 mph gusts probably crossing the far north of Scotland and Orkney for a time early on Monday.”
