Much of the area around Beccles Quay is still underwater as the remnants of Hurricane Gonzalo hit the region.
Homeowners near the quay breathed a sight of relief as the water lapped up against the side of their homes but did not breach the sandbags.
However Andy Coates, who runs Cobwebcrafts near Beccles Quay and Gillingham Dam, said: “We’ve been hit by the floods at my woodturning and stained glass workshop. The car park is under water, and obviously unusable, and the wood store is 12 inches deep.
“The water is higher than it was after last year’s storms. It’s just lucky we didn’t have heavy rain prior to the surge as this would have caused incredible problems.”
The grass area around the river, normally popular with tourists and dog walkers, is also underwater, with access roads around the quay closed.
