Weather experts issued a yellow weather warning for rain across the region lasting from this afternoon into tomorrow morning.
The A252 Canterbury Road is blocked in both directions at the Junction with Faversham Road due to a fallen tree, according to Kent Highways.
Another tree has come down in Benenden Road, Cranbrook, where it is thought to have hit telephone lines.
Kent County Council says BT is aware of the problem.
Rainfall could reach about 20mm, with up to 30mm in some areas.
The Environment Agency has issued a flood warning for several Kent rivers, including the upper and lower Medway, the Stour at Canterbury and rivers on the Isle of Sheppey.
