The high street in Chalford has flooded with some people forced to abandon their homes.
Homes have flooded there after a night of heavy rain.
Sarah Pullen, managing director of Gloucestershire Media, lives in the area and she watched the drama unfold.
She said: "I have never seen it so bad, the water is so high.
"People are out of their houses and are helping each other."
Elsewhere Lobley's Drive in Abbeymead is closed, the Ebley bypass is closed, while Fetter Hill in the Forest of Dean is impassable.
