More heavy rain is forecast and flood warnings issued for Bristol and the region after a weekend of gale-force winds and heavy downpours battered parts of the South West.
The Met Office has issued a number of severe weather warnings for the UK over the next 48 hours, with much of southern Britain at risk during Tuesday of further heavy rain.
The agency said following the weekend’s rainfall, further localised flooding is possible, as well as difficult driving conditions.
While the Environment Agency have said there is at present only a low risk of flooding in Bristol, all their local river stations are reporting levels well above their normal range.
Winds of up to 70mph caused havoc across the region, with about 10,000 homes left without power in south Wales and the west Midlands, as well as 2,000 in the South West, Western Power said.
The outages were caused by weather-related problems, such as trees bringing lines down, trees leaning on lines, or debris hitting power lines, a spokeswoman said.
The Severn Bridge was closed in both directions to high-sided vehicles on Sunday because of strong winds.
Meanwhile, much of the River Severn, including stretches in Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, was under a flood warning.
Police in Gloucestershire dealt with more than 35 weather-related incidents. More than 20 trees have been reported having fallen across roads in the county.
A police spokesman said the majority of the incidents had occurred in the Cheltenham area, Stroud, Dursley and parts of the Cotswolds.
The Environment Agency said about an inch (25mm) of rain had fallen in six hours. However, because of the recent drought conditions, that rainfall was likely to cause flooding.
A spokesman said: “Because of the drought situation an awful lot of the rain is going to go straight into the rivers rather than soaking into the ground.
“Environment Agency teams are out on the ground continuing a close watch on river levels as well as checking defences and clearing any potential blockages to reduce the risk of flooding.”
