Kent remains on flood alert today as the big Christmas getaway begins on the county's roads.
The Environment Agency has issued five warnings that rivers might flood in the county.
Among those areas on alert are the upper area of the River Medway and the River Eden - both to Penshurst.
An area around the River Beult from Pluckley and Bethersden to Hampstead Lock at Yalding, including Smarden, Headcorn, Collier Street, Benover and The Lees is also on standy for flooding.
A flood alert is also in place for the lower River Medway area including East Farleigh, Wateringbury, Teston and Teston Park, Tovil and Maidstone - including Millennium Park.
Another covers the upper River Stour area from Charing Heath to the A2070.
The Highways Agency said thousands of extra people are expected to take to Kent's roads from this afternoon as they travel for Christmas.
Kent is expected to get a brief break from the torrential rain today, but there are set to be more downpours over the weekend.
Drivers are advised to take extra care as heavy rain brings hazardous conditions.
