A flood warning that had been in place along the River Waveney has been removed.
With high tides wreaking havoc in much of the region yesterday, it was feared that low-lying properties and some roads would again be at risk throughout today.
But the Environment Agency has now taken down the warning, although a flood alert urging homeowners to 'be prepared' is now active.
An agency spokesman said: 'River levels are now steadily falling, but still remain quite high in some locations. The forecast is for no current flood risk from high tides.
'There may still be some areas where flood water is present until it can naturally drain away. We will continue to monitor levels closely.'
