Flood alerts remain in place across Suffolk today, with Storm Bella expected to bring gales and more rain overnight.
A yellow level weather warning in place for wind has been issued by the Met Office from 3pm today until midday tomorrow.
Winds could hit around 50mph in Suffolk, and up to 70mph in other areas of the UK. Heavy rain is also expected but the Orwell Bridge is not currently expected to close, according to Highways England.
Parts of Suffolk are already sodden after torrential rain brought widespread flooding across the county during the week, with many striking flood scenes captured on camera.
Flood alerts remain in place today for the Rivers Deben and Lark, the River Gipping, the River Stour, the River Colne, and the River Lark.
The Met Office said on its website: "Any early rain will clear south through the morning. A mostly dry but cloudy afternoon follows, although the odd spot of rain cannot be completely ruled out. Winds also strengthening, and turning strong by the evening.
