The River Roding, which flows through Redbridge, has been placed on flood alert by the Environment Agency.
Rain over the weekend, combined with forecast wet weather for much of this week, means a close watch is being kept on the river.
It flows through Wanstead, Woodford and Ilford and in 2000 it burst its banks, flooding around 1,000 homes.
• If you live close to the River Roding and experience any flooding, contact the Recorder on 020 8477 3800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cause of a huge fire in a shed that spread to a house and garage in Redbridge is under investigation.
