The Prince of Wales has offered his support to flood-hit residents in the UK by pledging a STG50,000 ($A93,686) donation.
The Duke of Westminster will match the funding with an additional STG50,000 - taking the total donation to STG100,000.
Prince Charles, patron of the Prince's Countryside Fund, which will provide the donation, braved heavy rain and winds in the area to attend a reception in Stoke St Gregory and visit local residents affected by the flooding.
Dozens of schoolchildren, residents and campaigners greeted him as he arrived in the small Somerset village, near Taunton.
Communities from local areas including Muchelney, Thorney and other isolated hamlets have been cut off by the waters, with major roads closed.
The Somerset Levels suffered "once in 100 years" flooding in 2012, with conditions returning to the area in recent weeks.
More than 128,000 acres are flooded, around 40 homes are under water and approximately 200 houses are cut off. In total, around 350 people are affected.
The Prince's Countryside Fund, founded by Charles, has supported Britain's hard-pressed rural areas since being set up by Business in the Community in July 2010.
Twice a year, the fund allocates grants to rural projects but it also reserves a portion of its income to be used in times of crisis.
