for Flood alert in force now Tidal River Wharfe

Flooding is possible - be prepared

This flood alert remains in force due to high river levels at the lower end of the River Wharfe near the confluence with the River Ouse. Levels further upstream on the Wharfe have fallen. Levels on the River Ouse remain high but are not expected to rise further through Tuesday 18/2/2020. At these levels, Kellfield Ings are full and Cawood Ings are beginning to fill with water. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers which may be flooded. We are closely monitoring the situation and our Area Incident Room is open. This message will be updated in 8 hours, or as the situation changes.
