Flood Warning

This Flood Warning remains in force as levels on the River Ouse remain high. The level at the Viking Recorder is currently 4.3m and forecast to rise slowly following recent rainfall. We currently expect a peak level in York of up to 4.7m early on Wednesday morning.  We expect access roads to be flooded and properties in Acaster Malbis to be at risk of flooding. Please use the gov.uk website for current river levels. Please do not walk or drive through fast moving water and avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses. Further showers are forecast later in the week.  Our Incident Room remains open and we are monitoring the situation closely. We will update the message in 8 hours or as the situation changes.
