Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service has been dealing with a number of flooding incidents in the county as a result of heavy rainfall.
Since just after 3pm today it has received 50 plus calls with the majority from the Ormesby St Margaret and Hemsby areas.
Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service has the following advice in flooding situations:
- Do not compromise your own personal safety or the safety of others
- Don’t drive or wade into flood water if at all possible, especially if it is fast flowing
- If you really can’t find a different route to drive round the flood, walk across first to check for depth
- If you absolutely have to enter flood water, don’t go deeper than the tops of your wellies, and use a pole to probe for holes in front of you
- Have a mobile phone with you, check the signal, and know exactly where you are – when you get stuck, we will need to be able to find you
- Be patient – these are flash floods, which will subside quickly; you could just wait a bit and see if the water level is dropping
Torrential downpours and thunderstorms are currently tracking across Northamptonshire and into Cambridgeshire and Norfolk, heading north east towards The Wash.
Areas on the rainfall radar map coloured white indicate rainfall rates of more than 32 mm per hour.

Work on a one million pound scheme to protect King's Lynn from flooding will get underway by the end of the month.
Today people are being invited to find out more about the King's Lynn Tidal Defence project and also discuss their concerns following the December tidal surge.
A drop in session is being held in the town hall this afternoon. The project will see flood gates refurbished and existing tidal defences strengthened.
Four people from Norfolk have attended a reception at Number 10 Downing Street in recognition of their work for their communities after the aftermath of December's tidal surge.
They battled what was "the worst of British weather" but showed, in the words of the Prime Minister, "the best of British spirit."

Seaside beauty spots around the East coast may be lost to the sea if nature is allowed to take its course.
It's been reported that some areas of the coast have been hit by years' worth of erosion in just the past three months.
The tidal surge of last December together with one of the wettest winters on record has wreaked havoc along the East coast.
In April the National Trust is to publish a report highlighting those areas in the Anglia region in a critical state.
