4 flood warnings on River Ouse

York Press: 4 flood warnings on River Ouse 4 flood warnings on River Ouse

FOUR flood warnings are today in place on stretches of the River Ouse as more heavy rain is forecast for North Yorkshire tomorrow.

The Environment Agency has added the section of the Ouse at Linton Lock to its list, having already issued warnings for St George's Field, Naburn Lock and the stretch of the river through the city-centre.

The level of the Ouse this afternoon is 3.7 metres and the agency said it was expected to remain at or around this point for the rest of today, possibly peaking at 3.8 metres. The rest of Sunday is expected to be dry, but more wet weather is forecast for tomorrow.

Meanwhile, firefighters from North Yorkshire have joined the effort to help flood-hit areas of southern England.

Crews from the region, as well as South and West Yorkshire, have been deployed to Somerset, Berkshire and Surrey with some of the county’s high-volume pumps, although fire chiefs said the move would not affect cover in Yorkshire.

The three services said they had responded to requests for “mutual aid”, which is called upon during emergencies. Duties include rescues from flooded homes, pumping operations and providing sandbags.

The southern fire services which asked for help have provided the Yorkshire crews with accommodation and meals.
