TORQUAY seafront was closed to traffic this morning because of flooding as parts of Devon and Cornwall went on flood alert amid heavy rain.
Torre Abbey, Livermead and Meadfoot Sea Road were the areas affected.
The Met Office is warning that some areas of Devon and Cornwall could have as much as 150mm (5.9in) of rain today.
The Environment Agency has warned that floods are possible along the South Devon coast at Beesands, Torcross, Slapton, Torbay and Dawlish.
The Met Office's website said: "Periods of heavy rain, accompanied at times by strong winds, will affect parts of western Britain during Monday.
"The public should be aware that quantities of rain may be sufficient in a few places to disrupt travel and give rise to localised flooding."
