Kent is back on flood alert today as forecasters predict heavy rain across the county.
Thundery showers are expected this afternoon, bringing up to 40mm of rain in places.
The Met Office warned people should be aware of the risk of localised flooding until this evening - after some homes were submerged overnight.
Fire crews received six calls to flooded roads in Deal, including Albert Road that was under almost a foot of water.
Veolio worker Hugh McCaughan was passing the road this morning when he saw the mess and began clearing up.
Among those flooded were Katie Monks and Sam Martin, who began a clear-up operation this morning after their carpet was saturated with foul water from the sewers.
Mother-of-two Katie said: "The carpet and laminate are ruined. I had to mop with bleach as soon as I got up.
"We can't cook in there. We will have to live upstairs for the next few days."
A fallen tree also blocked Kingsdown Road, but motorists were able to pass this morning.
Nash Road in Margate was closed this morning because of around nine inches of flooding between Salmestone Rise and Haine Road.
Earlier, one lane was blocked on the A253 coast-bound in Monkton because of flooding.
