Firefighters are currently pumping water out of the basement of a Royston house, following heavy rainfall overnight.
Crews were called to Rock Road in the town shortly before 11am after reports that the electrics had been affected by flooding.
The firefighters are still on scene, pumping out the water from the basement.
Crews and the police were also alerted to flooding on the A10 southbound between Royston to Reed at about midnight, as well as branches on the road.
Neither attended but the matter was passed on to Hertfordshire County Council’s highways team.
