A mum and her baby are among those rescued from gales in Cornwall.
The anchor of their yacht got caught up in other boats off Falmouth on Tuesday night. Another crew were plucked to safety by the lifeboat at Flushing.
The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for Cornwall. It says torrential rain will be followed by heavy and thundery downpours throughout Wednesday, interspersed with brightness. A spokesperson said, "The public should be aware that heavy rain may lead to localised surface water flooding and poor driving conditions."
Drivers have told Pirate FM flooding on some roads is almost to the top of their wheels.
The Environment Agency has issued a series of flood alerts for rivers in the southwest, including the rivers Lynher and Tavy and the upper Tamar, meaning that flooding is possible in these places.
