A Flood Alert has been put in place for a Yorkshire river amid heavy rain fall and a Met Office yellow warning for rain.
Heavy rain has been falling across Yorkshire today with rain set to continue tomorrow. This means some areas in Yorkshire may be at risk of flooding.
So far, the Environment Agency has issued a Flood Alert for the lower River Derwent. A Flood Alert means flooding in the area is “possible”.
This warning covers the roads and low-lying land around Stamford Bridge, Pocklington, Wressle, Wilberfoss and Elvington. The Environment Agency said: “Flooding is possible in this area.
“Monitor local water levels and weather conditions. Avoid using low lying footpaths or entering areas prone to flooding. Start acting on your flood plan if you have one.
“Environment Agency Flood Warning Officers set the river or tidal levels that have triggered this message.”
There is also a flood warning in place for the Humber Estuary from Spurn Point to Winestead Outfall. No other flood warnings are currently in place in Yorkshire, but there may be more warnings as rain continues to fall.
