This boat has been partially claimed by the swollen river – as three flood warnings remain in place for York today (Sunday).
It has sunk near the Foss Basin as the water levels remain high following Storm Babet.
Today three flood warnings are still in place for York, although it looks like we are past the peak.
Those flood warnings are:
- River Ouse at York – riverside properties – Areas most at risk include riverside properties through central York
- River Ouse at York – St George’s Field and Queen’s Staith – Areas most at risk include riverside properties around Queen’s Staith, around Tower Gardens and St George’s Field and Rowntree Park
- River Ouse at Naburn Lock – Areas most at risk include riverside properties around Naburn Lock where flooding may occur.
According to the Viking Recorder, levels on the River Ouse peaked at 7.15am this morning (Sunday, 22 October) at 3.64m – the top of the normal range is 1.9m.
The waters are starting to recede, and are predicted to fall to 2.63m by 12.15am on Tuesday (24 October).
As usual with river levels like this, York remains fully open except for the areas next to the river.
Rowntree Park is inaccessible from the river side, but the café is open and the park can be accessed via entrances on the Bishopthorpe Road side.
Elsewhere, Tadcaster Bridge, closed as a precaution yesterday, has reopened to traffic today.
There are a number of flood alerts in place in North Yorkshire:
- Lower River Derwent
- Tidal River Ouse from Naburn Lock to Selby
- Upper River Derwent
- Upper River Ouse.
