Locally, in the Furness peninsula, we haven't seen anything like that, but one low section of Ulverston did have water coming in the houses, ruining the ground floors. People cursed as a car drove through the watery street, its wake entering their houses.
This photo was taken on Monday, 3 days after the worst. We saw sheep in a submerged field, gathered atop the only dry spot.
We walked around town Friday - our only full day of sunshine in weeks. Two brooks run through town. Our car is parked near one called The Gill. The water was gushing down it, contained only by the stone walls. It's rather dismaying to realize that the brook goes underneath the town (photo below) , with barely 12 inches between water level and the viaduct ceiling. We found it farther downstream, where it shot out from under a house for about 10 yards before it went under another house. (shiver).

With the recent downpours, the main road has been impaired by flooding. My bus on Thursday was stuck in a 2-mile backup for half an hour, as each car slowly made its way through a puddle up to the bumper.
