    In Glasgow, videos posted on social media showed cars stranded in water which swamped city streets.

    The Environment Agency warned people in Cumbria to remain vigilant due to the continued risk of significant flooding over the weekend. It said 40 properties have already been flooded.

    Explained: What is flooding and why does it happen?

    When there's too much water, or if the water's in the wrong place, it causes a problem that's called flooding.

    In the UK, people are sometimes forced out of their homes when lots of rain has fallen in a short space of time and caused a flood.

    There are many different types of flooding, and some of the most common ones are:

    • Coastal flooding 
    • River flooding 
    • Groundwater flooding 
    • Flash floods 

    Because the UK gets a lot of rain and sometimes it's really heavy, normally the soil and plants act like a giant sponge. However, sometimes the sponge effect doesn't work because the ground is already very wet.

    When that happens, all the rain tries to get into the river at the same time. If the river isn't big enough to handle the water there will be a flood.

    'Autumn is very much with us'

    Met Office meteorologist Luke Miall said: “Autumn is very much with us across the UK through this week, turning a lot more unsettled over the next few days.

    Residents and visitors and especially holidaymakers in the Lake District have been urged to stay alert and check their flood risk.

    You can do so by signing up for free flood warnings on the Gov.uk website and via the @EnvAgency on Twitter.

    FOOT of downpours expected in coming days

    Brits have been battered by torrential rain with nearly a FOOT of downpours expected in the coming days as danger-to-life floods grip parts of the country.

    A total of five weather warnings are in place today – two of which are categorised as “severe.”

    Persistent, heavy rain has led to flooding and disruption, and a danger to life warning has been issued as Brits are warned to stay away from fast-flowing or deep floodwater.

    Trains and bus services are expected to be delayed and cancelled – while some communities will be cut off by the floodwater.

    Handful of properties flooded

    Stewart Mounsey, the Environment Agency's flood risk manager for Cumbria, said: “Sadly we are seeing some properties being flooded, it's only a handful at the moment, but that's obviously devastating for those involved.

    “We're still gathering the number of those and locations.”

    Pictures on social media show chaos 

    People have been taking to social media to show the submerged roads in Cumbria, with one image showing cars stuck at Windermere School.

    A video by flood risk analyst Dr Ed Henderson also showed terrible driving conditions and submerged roads yesterday in Borrowdale.

    Potential risk to life and property, travel disruption and power cuts
