The River Leri burst its banks overnight under pressure from the driving rain and winds of up to 70mph, as homes in villages across the area were battered by the elements.
The worst-hit areas were several parks and river-side properties, including the Riverside Caravan Park in Llandre where struggling families were rescued by lifeboats and three people had to be airlifted from the roofs of caravans and other mobile and static homes.
Between 4ft and 5ft of water has been reported as running through the nearby town of Talybont, leading to a crowd of about 30 local people seeking refuge in the local community hall.
