The region prepared itself for torrential rain and gale force winds today as the remains of Hurricane Bertha arrived. The storm caused part of a supermarket ceiling to collapse in Maidstone, localised flooding across the region and transport delays - but in most areas, it had cleared away by the late afternoon.
Sarah Saunders' report has viewer footage from Ian Duffus and Charlotte Thurston. She spoke to flood victim Bill Smith and weather forcaster Philippa Drew.
