Here’s the latest on the floods in our area, as more rain hits the region from Storm Christoph.
As we reported yesterday, City of York Council has put up flood barriers and walkways in York in anticipation of the river levels rising.
And they have a Covid-safe evacuation plan for riverside residents, should the worst happen.
There are three flood warnings for York and 17 for the North Yorkshire.
River Ouse, York city centre – 4.15am update: “Early forecasts indicate potential levels of over 4m later this week. Please prepare your property, avoid using low lying footpaths and do not walk, cycle or drive through flood water.”
This covers both riverside properties, and St George’s Field and Queen’s Staith. The Ouse is expected to rise to at least 4.24m tomorrow (Thursday), with property flooding possible above 3m.
River Ouse at Naburn Lock – 4.28am update: “Levels at Naburn will remain high. Please be aware that persistent and heavy rain is forecast until Thursday. We expect levels to rise significantly.”
