Many riverside areas across the county are still submerged, although water levels have started to drop across the county.
At Shrewsbury levels are down nearly half a metre with new photos showing how much clearer Smithfield Road and Wyle Cop are compared to Tuesday.
Meanwhile the river level peaked at Ironbridge shortly before midnight without overwhelming the barrier, though the level has barely dropped in the hours since then and the severe 'danger to life' flood warning remains in place.
The River Severn has also peaked at Bridgnorth where levels are also starting to go down.

Shropshire Council is urging anyone planning to visit Shrewsbury town centre to use the park and ride with the main town centre car parks closed.
Bus services 8 & 18 are serving Madeley as normal then diverting via the Ironbridge bypass direct to Much Wenlock. They are not serving Ironbridge Gorge as the Lloyds is flooded and the section from the bottom of Madeley Bank is closed. There is no service to Jackfield.
Service 19 is currently diverting after Lightmoor via the Lawley bypass and M54/A5 due to B4380 flooded at Atcham.
Shrewsbury's Darwin Centre has opened this morning but the council advice to use park and ride services remains because of all the closed roads.
In Ironbridge all Wharfage businesses are temporarily closed.
Flood reception centre
The council opened a flood reception centre in Bridgnorth at 9am at Castle Hall, West Castle Street. They will offer advice and support to those who need it.
