Hundreds of people had to be evacuated from homes in Barnstaple after the River Yeo burst its banks.
A woman spent 50 minutes clinging to a branch after being swept away from her flooded car at Umberleigh in North Devon.
Braunton's brand new flood defences were unable to withstand their first test of flooding.
