Parts of Kent have been hit by flooding as torrential rain sweeps across the county.
Water levels are rising in Sandwich and Deal, with Southern Water called out to install road closures and pumps in the worst-affected areas.
And in Broadstairs, firefighters had to rescue two people from a car after it became stranded in flood water.
There are also reports the Westwood Cross shopping precinct is flooded.
Just a few days ago, Kent was named the hottest place in the UK for more than 100 years.
But now, a yellow severe weather warning - meaning "be aware" - is in place until 7pm.
Forecasters say an area of torrential, thundery rain is developing across the region this morning, which brings the potential for "exceptionally large amounts" of rain within a few hours.
There may also be frequent lightning and hail.
A Met Office spokesman said: "Please be prepared for the potential for very severe weather conditions bringing flash flooding and disruption to transport.
"A cold front approaching moist, unstable air is expected to generate a line of exceptionally heavy, thundery rain.
"Possible sustained hourly rates of more than 30 mm could result in totals of more than 100 mm in 3-4 hours.
"Particularly in urban areas, this could lead to flooding of properties and businesses and major disruption to transport."
