People living in the Easthorpe area of Nottingham have spoken out of their fears as heavy rains are predicted to hit the region tonight.
One resident, Jill Morris, said she was "terrified" after spending the week cleaning up the mess caused by flash flooding when weeks of hot weather broke on Monday night.
The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning for the majority of the region.
The yellow warning means people should "be aware" of the chance of heavy downpours and thunderstorms this evening.
