Intense rain showers have left some roads in Felixstowe underwater this evening.
Residents reported heavy showers of rain from just after 7pm with rumbles of thunder.
The intense burst of rain which lasted around 20-30 minutes has caused flash flooding in areas of the town, particularly Old Felixstowe, and both High Road East and High Road West with the junction of Seaton Road.
Undercliff Road West on the seafront and Langer Road - where householders had water washing up to their front doors - also suffered problems.
On Cavendish Park in the west of the town, people reported flooding in porches and front rooms.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue have been called out to Garrison Lane in the town to help deal with the flooding.
Businesses appealed for car drivers to slow down as the wash waves vehicles caused sent water towards properties.
