Brixham coastguard has co-ordinated the rescue of a driver who got stuck on the tidal road between Aveton Gifford and Bigbury.
The road, by the River Avon, floods at high tide. The driver was released from his vehicle and the tide is receding.
It appears there is unlikely to be any let up in the relentless rain showers that have battered the Westcountry over the past few days.
Communities in Devon hit by floods over the weekend have been praised by Devon County Council. Many residents are still clearing up.
Dozens of people are clearing up after heavy rain burst rivers and flooded homes. Devon and Dorset hardest hit.
