Humberside Police said this morning’s high tides had now passed without causing any significant damage, and were lower than anticipated.
They also released the following updates:
Ferensway is still closed for cleaning and assessment.
Castle Street is now open, and the A63 is due to re-open before midday.
The A1077 is closed at Winteringham Fields.
Gunness Straight is now open.
All abandoned cars which were left on Castle Street have been recovered by Humberside Police and taken to Bells Trucks compound in Woodmansey.
Motorists can recover their vehicle from the compound without incurring a charge, due to the severe weather conditions.
Agencies have assessed the area around the Humber, and stated that there is no further risk to life at this time.
Rail services in and out of Hull and on the south bank of the River Humber.
Spurn Point will still be inaccessible due to issues in Kilnsea area – work is underway to get the area cleaned and open
Tide levels are expected to be similar to the heights of this morning
Environment Agency staff are currently working to identify any issues with defences in preparations for the next high tide, which will be typically high.
Staff from Selby District Council have spent the night working alongside emergency services and Environment Agency colleagues to help protect homes from flooding at Acaster Selby.
A flood warning was issued last night for the around 20 properties in the village.
The flood warning remains in place this morning.
Flood warning now in place at Acaster Selby, due to the tidal River Ouse.
Staff from Selby District Council are at Back Lane delivering sandbags to residents, with levels of six metres expected due to a tidal surge.
North Yorkshire Fire Service say they have several pumps in the Whitby and Scarborough areas, with about a dozen incidents of properties suffering from flooding at each location.
Anyone affected by flooding in Whiby is advised to go to Whitby Community College.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has put emergency plans into action at a number of locations where a tidal surge may lead to flooding.
The council has advised residents of Paull, Hessle Haven, Brough and at Blacktoft, to prepare for evacuation.
Emergency plans will be operational throughout the night, with transport services deploying buses to affected areas to take residents to leisure centres that are being used as respite centres. Sandbags are also being distributed to protect properties.
A spokesman said: “We would advise residents to avoid the seafronts, to relocate family and possessions upstairs, if possible, and for motorists to allow extra time for their journeys and to drive to the conditions.
The latest flood alerts are available through the Environment Agency at environment-agency.gov.uk
Flood warnings still in place by the Environment Agency along the North Sea coast, including Scarborough, Sandsend and Whitby to Filey. Nothing in place at the moment for Malton, York or Selby.
North Yorkshire Police and the Highways Agency have confirmed the A64 near Tadcaster is now clear, after the canoe was removed from the Eastbound carriageway.
Humberside Police have urged residents in several areas of East Yorkshrie to leave their homes after the environment agency extended severe flood warning levels to a number of locations.
These areas include Kilnsea, Hessle Haven through to the Humber Bridge and Blacktoft. People living in these areas are encouraged to evacuate their properties and to go stay with friends and family in the areas away from here.
Another area in which the flood warning has been raised to severe is Victoria Dock, Hull. Due to the buildings here being high rise, residents are asked to move up to high floors. A large number of properties in this area are affected.
Residents who are evacuating are advised to take an overnight bag containing change of clothing, key documents including insurance policies and medication for 24 hours. A spokesman also urged residents to secure their properties before leaving.
Reports have come in of one lane of the A64 being blocked due to a canoe in the road.
The problem is on the A64 Eastbound at Tadcaster, between the A162 and A659.
Motorists are advised to approach the area with care, as the canoe is causing a hazard to drivers in the outer lane.
This update has come in from reporter Mark Branagan, in Scarborough:
Scarborough seafront's entire Golden Mile was tonight swamped by the freak tides.
Fishing crews leapt aboard their vessels to stop them being wrecked as pounding waves breached the harbour wall.
Arcades and cafes have been flooded along the entire South Bay. Deck chair stacks have been lifted off the beach onto the prom.
Showers of sparks were seen as the waves shorted out electric mains. The lifeboat station has been abandoned as a deluge of water poured through the doors.
Piles of fish boxes were swept away and split open, filling the air with the stench of the morning's catch.
The harbour wall disappeared under the rising tide. Shopkeepers were trapped in their premises.
The main life boat was parked outside the lifeboat house. One rescue worker said: "Waves are just coming through the lifeboat house so we are just going to leave it there. There is no harbour. It is all under water."
A 999 worker on a quad bike towed the smaller inshore lifeboat away from the seafront.
It was estimated the tide was 6.1m above normal when it finally peaked around 5.20pm.
But the flood waters failed to recede. Drain covers have been blown off and all roads leading down to the seafront remain closed.
Miles Jackson tried desperately to sandbag his shop his family have owned for years.
He said: "There was plenty of warning. We tried to get more sandbags down. But it was too much. All I can say is we all got out the shop and are safe. Everything else can be replaced."
Surveying the damage, former mayor Janet Jefferson said: "This is a disaster for the seafront properties which have been hit.
"I have lived here 30 years and never seen anything like it. No amount of insurance money can cover things like this. It was forecast it was going to happen and now it has and it is going to have a big impact on some of these businesses."
Mother Gill Smith, leaving the seafront with her daughter, said: "We came down to see the sea and got a scene from Titanic."
Police said they were disappointed at having to rescue people who had ignored warnings to take pictures.
Debris, branches, and fish boxes were washed onto the prom despite 2ft walls made up of hundreds of sandbags.
The deluge which swept along the seafront was more than 4ft high and easily overwhelmed the defences.
At least one electrical fire was put out in a property as electrical systems were overwhelmed.
Eyewitness and former arcade worker John Ford said: "You could see the showers of sparks.
"All the arcades have water in them. The owner of one cafe came past me and she was crying. All people could do was stand and watch.
"It is bizarre watching boats sailing past on the sea which is higher than you are."
Shell fish merchant David Jenkinson arrived on Sandside to find his lobster business marooned and cut off.
He said: "The harbour wall has vanished. Fish boxes are floating around. Debris is everywhere. All the properties on the seafront are under water. We are ringing the insurance companies already. The people down South are really going to suffer if we have got it this bad here."
East Coast have confirmed they expect to operate a normal timetable tomorrow.
All services will run as normal on Friday, with the exception of three services which will start at Edinburgh and Doncaster instead of Inverness, Glasgow and Hull.
Services north of Newcastle have been suspended today but have tonight resumed between Edinburgh and Newcastle.
The route between Edinburgh and Dundee will also reopen tonight, and the train operator is working with infrastructure provider Network Rail to try to run services through to Aberdeen later this evening.
A spokesman for East Coast said: “Services have been subject to an amended timetable today with extended journey times. Network Rail and East Coast have had several issues to deal with across the route today caused by severe weather, including high winds.
“However, East Coast’s normal timetable will resume tomorrow for the vast majority of customers. We apologise to all of our customers who have been inconvenienced as a result of the service disruption today."
The spokesman also said tickets for travel today will be valid on Friday and tickets for tomorrow will be valid on Saturday at similar times of the day.
Customers are still advised to check for the latest travel information online before travelling.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has put emergency plans in place and will monitor weather conditions throughout the night.
The council has sent out scouts to monitor overtopping and an emergency control centre has been set up with sandbags and water pumps.
Counci workers are also knocking on doors at caravan sites and coastal homes that might be at risk from flooding and erosion.
Five hundred homes around Tollerton Road, York, lost power earlier this afternoon. Most services have been restored now, but 70 homes are still without electricity.
First Buses are reporting "heavy delays" on Shipton road across and across Clifton bridge causing delays to the P&R Rawcliffe Bar service 2.
Fulford Road is starting to become heavy with traffic so delays are to be expected.
The M62 bridge over the Ouse near Goole is currently closed and their are delays in both directions between J36 and J37 - a lorry has overturned.
Northern Powergrid are reporting 35,000 homes without power - spread right across the North East, Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.
A fallen tree, at the junction of Leeman Road and Bright Street, is removed by workers using a mechanical digger.
Roads now cleared. Our Courtyard Café is closed for the rest of today due to damage caused by the weather, all other outlets open as usual.— @CastleHowardEst 05 December 2013
The weather has caused damage all over the York and North Yorkshire - several cars have been destroyed when winds brought down trees on them.
Keith Hilton had parked his Skoda Octavia outside St Everilda’s Church in Nether Poppleton, where he was attending the funeral of Jennifer Ryan. Minutes before the ceremony started, a huge branch broke off a tree in the churchyard and crashed through the back screen of his car.
He said: “We can only count ourselves lucky no-one was in the car. The first we heard was when someone came into the church saying a silver car had had a branch fall on it.
“I’ve had it four years, and it’s the best car I’ve had. It’s going in on Tuesday for some work on the front end but that’s probably not happening now.”
Our highways team are working hard to clear #trees from #northyorks roads. Here's a picture of one in #Selby http://t.co/7MgFmCpZ0A— @northyorkscc 05 December 2013
Lord Mayor's Walk has reopened.
Fire crews were called earlier to remove loose leading from the roof of a university building.
BT Openreach have confirmed reports of a phone line blown off a house on Highthorn Road, near New Lane, at noon today. There are faults on nearby phone lines but the extent of the problem is not yet known. Engineers are en route but the weather has caused a lot of problems with overhead lines across the region, a spokesman said.
Ambulance staff in York came across a Vauxhall Corsa which had been crushed by a fallen tree on Leeman Road this morning. Paradmedics stopped to check the scene, but no one was injured.

Emergency has been declared by Humberside Police.
This update just in from Humberside Fire and Rescue Service:
Communities along the East Coast of the Humber area are warned to brace themselves ahead of what is likely to be the most serious coastal tidal surge for over 30 years in our region.
This has led to a major incident being declared as emergency services and local authorities across the Humber prepare for high tides from around 5pm.
The Environment Agency and Met Office are warning that gale-force winds, large waves and a tidal surge caused by low pressure will combine with high tides today and throughout Friday and to Saturday morning, bringing a risk of significant coastal flooding.
People in Immingham, Grimsby and Cleethorpes close to the River Humber and coast line are advised to start taking precautions.
East Coast are now warning people not to try to travel north of Newcastle on their trains.
Trains south of Newcastle are also running on an amended schedule. Details here www.eastcoast.co.uk.
A spokesman said: “Network Rail has taken the decision to close all rail routes north of Newcastle due to a combination of high winds plus fallen trees and other debris falling onto the track.
”We apologise to all customers for any inconvenience caused by today’s disruption to train services.”
There are no trains through Doncaster because of wind damage to the station.
Grand Central trains from London Kings Cross to Sunderland, passing through York, are delayed.
No First TransPennine Express trains are running between York and Newcastle. Trains between Leeds and Selby are being delayed because of an obstruction on the line. Trains between York and Darlington are being delayed because of a signalling problem.
