Hebden Bridge was hit flash floods for a second time in a month yesterday, with more rain forecast today.
Police told people not to venture into areas of Hebden Bridge, Calderdale, as heavy rainfall had made them "impassable" on Monday.
A West Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said:
The police spokeswoman said those living in Hebden Bridge were advised to stay indoors and go upstairs if possible and should not "venture out into the floodwaters".
The floods comes as residents continue to clear up from last month's floods, which affected more than 500 homes and businesses in Hebden Bridge, Todmorden and Mytholmroyd.
Calderdale Council said Hebden Bridge library had to be evacuated, a number of roads were cordoned off and sandbags were stacked in flooding blackspots.
A spokesman said: "A very heavy cloudburst above the hillside on Keighley Road has resulted in a large volume of surface water overwhelming drainage systems in Hebden Bridge.
Calderdale Council and the Environment Agency tweeted updates to the residents of the Hebden Bridge area to keep them updated. The Environment Agency warned residents to "act now":
Residents posted videos onto YouTube showing the relentless flood water surging through the town.
This amateur footage shows the full force of the floods taking over Hebden Bridge for the second time in two months. A man attempts to chase after what appears to be a metal bin, but decides against it after the flood waters are too strong.
