The wet weather does not look set to go away any time soon with another yellow warning from the Met Office.
The company has issued a yellow warning for rain in Devon, following another wet weekend across the county.
The Met Office expects a mostly dry and clear start to Monday evening (November 25) but foresees heavy rain arriving during the early hours of the morning. The forecast for the rest of the week is expected to be wet and windy.
Many East Devon roads were flooded including in Sidmouth, at Bulverton on the B3176.
Councillor Stuart Hughes said over the weekend 25 gullies had to be cleared because they were blocked by leaves.
