for Flood alert in force now Lower River Derwent

Flooding is possible - be prepared

This flood alert remains in force due to high levels on the River Derwent around Elvington as a result of rainfall last week. Levels at Elvington are falling slowly but will stay higher than normal throughout Thursday 05/12/19. Consequently, flooding of low lying land, paths and roads remains. Please avoid using low lying land and riverside footpaths near local watercourses and avoid driving through any standing floodwater. No significant rainfall is forecast over the next few days which should allow levels to drop. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update this message on Thursday evening, or as the situation changes. See the GOV.UK website for a 5 day flood forecast.
