It followed the Met Office issuing an amber weather warning for North Yorkshire as Storm Debi blew in.
Fortunately there were no serious injuries suffered in any of these incidents.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “It’s been a busy night with a high number of weather-related calls. We’ve worked hard to keep people safe and keep traffic moving as best we can.
“Storm Debi has passed, but she’s left flooded roads, felled trees and other dangerous debris in her wake.
“So if you’re travelling by road today, be on your guard for unexpected flooding or obstructions, and please allow that little bit of extra time to arrive safely.”
