The new shots, taken today, show the evacuated areas around Burrowbridge, Bridgwater, and Moorland.
Bridgwater area, Somerset
14. The main railway line through Somerset near Bridgwater is now completely underwater in places.
16. The village of Moorland is now almost completely abandoned.
21. Sam Notaro is one of the people left: He is continuing his desperate efforts to save his £1 million new-build house from the floods.
22. He has constructed a mud bank around his property and has used plastic sheets and sandbags around the house itself.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article stated that there was only one resident left in the village of Moorland. A resident has contacted BuzzFeed to say there are in fact a number of residents left in the town, in 13 houses and bungalows, still battling to keep the flood waters at bay.
