Despite the extensive damage, the spirits of many business people remain positive
People in flood-hit Cumbria are bracing themselves for more heavy rain - with up to 100mm (3.9in) predicted to fall on areas of high ground.
The Environment Agency said the downpour could further raise river levels and bring more flooding.
However, river levels are not expected to return to those which brought devastation to areas on Friday.
Meanwhile, a temporary railway station is being built to reconnect two halves of Workington split by bridge closures.
Matt Crump, of the Environment Agency, speaking after the Met Office issued a severe weather warning for the county, said: "Normally four inches of rain in Cumbria at this time of year would give us some concern.
"Obviously after torrential rain at the end of last week the ground is very saturated and the rivers and the lakes are extremely full.
"That means we do have some concerns that there will be a certain amount of additional flooding, but it is unlikely that this will be as extensive as last week."
He said the agency had prepared for the next band of rain by shoring up flood defences up and removing obstructions from water courses.
