A flood alert has been issued for parts of Kent today amid more heavy rain across the county.
The Environment Agency said an area around the upper River Stour, from Charing Heath to Ashford, is potentially at risk.
It comes as the Met Office has a weather warning in place, with up to 40 mm of rain expected in some places, after the washout Bank Holiday Monday.
The Environment Agency flood alert covers the River Stour from Charing Heath to the A2070 including Ashford, communities on the East Stour, the Whitewater and Ruckinge Dykes and the Aylesford Stream.
It also includes the Aldington and Hothfield flood reservoirs.
The Met Office weather warning for raid is in force until 7pm today.
A spokesman said: "The public should be aware of the risk of localised surface water flooding and standing water/spray on roads."
