Experts are warning that many parts of the UK could get a month's worth of rain in just 24 hours over the weekend.
The Environment Agency has urged a total of 86 communities to be ready to evacuate if they are flooded. Most of these warnings have come in the east and north-east of the country.
It has warned that flooding could be the worst of the year and heavy rain has already hit parts of East Anglia and East Midlands.
The Met Office has issued an amber warning, which means that people should be prepared for oncoming weather.
Pete Fox from the Environment Agency told BBC Breakfast that some local authorities will be able to provide sandbags to some concerned householders.
"That's one of a number of things - not least move their car to higher ground as well as valuables and sentimental items like photographs and family albums which you can't replace," he added.
