Flooding Update From East Riding Of Yorkshire Council

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is aware of a number of instances of flooded roads across the area. Teams are out working to keep residents safe, along with many partner organisations, including Humberside Police, Humberside Fire and Rescue and the Environment Agency.

The council is urging people to keep away from flood waters and swollen rivers, and not drive through flood water. It is often deeper than it looks, and just 30cm of flowing water is enough to float a car.

Driving through flooded roads can also push water into homes.

Residents can also follow the council on its Facebook page for updates on the situation.
