The village of Jaywick in Essex is to be evacuated due to potential flooding caused by rain and strong winds.
Police officers are calling at homes to warn the village's 4,665 residents of the evacuation, which will start at 7am on Friday.
A rest centre has been set up for use until homes "are deemed safe to return to".
Chief inspector Russ Cole said: "This decision has not been taken lightly and has been made in the best interests of all residents to ensure their safety until the severe weather passes."
