There are currently 12 flood alerts in place affecting Lincolnshire and a village near Grantham experienced flooding in the streets and around some properties.
There was further heavy rainfall across the upper Witham catchment overnight.
Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue set up a temporary flood barrier to protect two properties on the Bourne Road estate in Colsterworth.
A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue said: “We were called at 8.19am to the Bourne Road estate at Colsterworth, to a poly boom pipe puncture.
“The Grantham crew attended, where they fixed and bolstered the flood barrier and diverted the water. They left at 10.57am.”
Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue added that they were called out to one further flood related issue in the county on Thursday morning.
