The damage caused by almost continual floods in York can be seen in aerial photographs of the city today (Tuesday).
Drone images show the size of another large tree that has been toppled in Tower Gardens, underwater for so many weeks this autumn and winter.
It is the second mature tree to be lost to flooding in the park.
In February 2022, YorkMix reported how another tree fell in the gardens after sitting in floodwater.
The aerial photos show how the river has reclaimed the banks and riverside paths again.
There remain three flood warnings in place in York. Both the car parks at Rowntree Park and St George’s Field are closed again, and City of York Council have pumps in place along the riverside.
The damage to the flora and fauna at Rowntree Park, also underwater for many weeks, will have to be assessed when the winter is over.
The level of the Ouse at the Viking Recorder reached 3.72m at 5.15pm this evening.
It is now forecast to rise again, possibly as high as 4.27m by 4.45am on Thursday. However, these predictions change hourly.
The top of the normal range is 1.9m.
