Flood barriers are going up in Appleby because of concerns about the rising levels of the River Eden. The Environment Agency have issued a flood warning, which means flooding is likely, for Appleby and Bolton village.
The Environment Agency still has flood warnings in place for the Rivers Eden and Caldew in Carlisle. It's also expecting to issue a warning for Appleby. So far the region has escaped any major problems. In Scotland there are five flood warnings across the Borders.
People affected by flooding in west Cumbria are being offered grants of up to £1,000. The Copeland Community Fund has a hardship fund of £50,000 to be given to people who need help with clean up and recovery.

A meeting in Hawick have been explaining the progress of the town's flood defences.
Hawick suffered serious flooding in 2005 when the River Teviot overflowed prompting Scottish Borders Council to find a solution to the problem.
Flood-risk consultants who have been studying ways of stopping flooding in Hawick say major work won't start for at least three years.
Options will be considered over the next few months on where the flood defences will be.
A scheme could cost between £15 million and £90 million pounds.
The Scottish Government has promised to pay for 80% of it.
People in Hawick are being invited to see the flood scheme for themselves at a display at The Heart Of Hawick building.
