Families have been warned to expect flooding as more rainfall hits the county.
Alerts are in place for the Little Ouse River and River Thet, in Thetford, as Norfolk sees further rainfall despite missing the most of Storm Jorge.
River levels remain high at the Redbridge river gauge with more rainfall forecast over the next 24 hours.
Residents living near to the rivers are being advised to take care on riverside roads and footpaths.
On its flood information service online, gov.uk, it said: "We expect river levels to remain high for the next 24 hours. We are closely monitoring the situation.
You may also want to watch:
"Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded."
It comes as parts of the country are expected to face 70mph winds and heavy rain from Storm Jorge.
