The Environment Agency has apologised to Oxfordshire residents for failing to issue a flood warning until six hours after they were under water.
Among the flooded were seven properties in the Wendlebury area and another three in Steventon near Abingdon. It happened when a third of a month's rainfall (33mm) fell in one night last week.
