Latest updates

The latest advice from the Environment Agency (EA) is that the level of the River Ouse will continue to fall slowly. We're undertaking a 'recovery operation' and we're in the process of taking down our temporary flood defences with a clean-up almost complete.

We're continuing to work closely with the EA via the North Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum – alongside the police, fire services as well as North Yorkshire County Council, and the Met Office; we're closely monitoring the situation, and the city remains open for business.

We'd like to thank residents for their patience and understanding, and for pulling together to support each other and our teams during their work.
