The leader of Buckinghamshire County Council, Martin Tett, has visited emergency teams working to contain and clear flood water in Marlow.
Teams are creating a 'Sandbag Station' at Pound Lane in Marlow, as close to the flooded area as possible.
Five hundred sandbags have been stored there for residents to use for defences around their homes.
TfB (Transport for Buckinghamshire) has supplied 4,000 sandbags to residents whose homes were in serious or imminent danger of flooding.
Council Leader Martin Tett said: 'It was great to see the teams from Buckinghamshire County Council, Transport for Bucks, Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue, Wycombe District Council and Marlow Town Council operating so well together in very difficult circumstances.
"I'm really proud of the way they're working around the clock to do their best for our residents. I was also really impressed with the way in which local people have rallied round and are offering the teams everything for physical help to tea and biscuits!"
