Devon County Council’s Highways Centre said many roads were becoming passable this morning with flood waters receding in places. However, it is still advising motorists not to travel unless it is essential and warns of large quantities of debris on roads across the region.
The deluge comes after more than 12 hours of torrential rain fell across the region yesterday.
There may be brief respite this morning, however a weather warning of wind remains in place for the county until midday with severe gales expected.
More heavy rain is expected on Monday. A heavy rain weather warning is in place for Devon and Cornwall until 9pm and forecasters are predicting heavy showers in the afternoon.
