A team of soldiers have been put on alert for possible deployment to Marlow, according to local MP Dominic Grieve.
It comes as the River Thames running through the town remains swollen, whilst properties in the surrounding area have already been swamped by flood waters.
The recent flooding has caused an unprecedented number of sinkholes to appear in roads and near people's homes. Martin Stew investigates.
The 600-metre aqua-dam was pumped full of flood water on Friday to protect 200 homes.
Many householders have started to empty their homes and look for temporary accommodation.
