Heavy rain has caused flooding in the town of Cockermouth in Cumbria. More than 200 people had to be rescued from their homes by lifeboats.
The RNLI lifeboats are normally used to help people at sea. It's not often that they're needed to save people on a high street.
Helicopters were also used to pluck people from their homes. Some of them had to smash through their roofs to make it to safety.
The flooding became a problem overnight, but as it got light on Friday morning there was still much to do to make people safer.
An MP from the area, Tony Cunningham, said the flooding is the type only seen once every 1,000 years.
The floods have been caused by heavy rain falling on ground that was already soaking wet. That meant the rain all ran into rivers, so the levels kept rising.
