The river has topped the banks this morning and it’s not even high tide yet. You can hear it from over a mile away,even worse on the other side.
wife is over at her mothers and the water is rapidly getting closer to the brother in laws home made flood barrier.
Two of the bridges are now closed and there’s only one route open into York from here as the other villages are cut off.
The amazing thing is gloaters who want to look have started to appear resulting in one car being abandoned already as the morons who own it didn’t take any notice of the signs to stay away.
I got to within a mile of were it is topping the bank and didn’t go any further as you can see the ditches and drains rapidly filling and flooding the fields behind the roads and paths.
The white on the green banking is cascading water.
alicantesteve Thanks for sharing your photos👍Be safe
Nice set of photos. Thanks for sharing.
alicantesteve Very interested to see all your photos and your first hand account gives a much better idea of what it's really like "on the ground", the bits left above water that is. I hope that you and yours all find a way to manage.
To top it off it’s now snowing.
alicantesteve oh how awful for you all, I hope it starts to recede and that your brother in law and family are ok 😞
alicantesteve Thank you for the photos I think York is one the best Cities and so beautiful I hope it will soon be dry and back to normal
alicantesteve great pics but my thoughts are with everyone affected by flooding, I hope it clears up soon.🤔
@frenchielove Thanks. Unfortunately this will be just the start,the bridge we use to get to York is now closed for 21 days minimum. Wife just rang to say she is watching large trees float by the bottom of the garden. Let’s hope they keep on floating past. Don’t want to have to be clearing those out of the field in a months time.
Mother in laws fields and garden. They arnt on the designated flood plain but because of the brown envelope gang and building up stream on flood plains they get this now.
Oh no thats not looking good . Another storm forecast for the weekend now .
Really hope some of this subsides before Dennis arrives .
Wow , your definition stuck there . Keep safe, wishes to everyone affected 👍
@gillone cheers,levelling off at the moment,unfortunately another storm is due in a few days so we will see what happens. The moors are totally sodden so that’s still got to hit the rivers.
That’s got to go up surely. There must be more water to filter through and more to come. Not good. Not good at all,
@andyslc @kayden16 Yup lots more to come down though it depends on how high the tide is.
This was 4 years ago on Boxing Day flooded in 12 hours and was on average 20 ft deep. Took 6 weeks to clear with the local pump stations working overtime.
I posted some pics on general discussion of where i live . Showing how wet and wild the sea was today 😃
@kayden16 Yes spotted those,rather wild,used to get those when we lived over on the east coast. Even when the sea fronts were closed down idiots still went to get a closer look resulting in numerous needless deaths.
Hope folk are staying away from those spectacular waves in your neck of the woods.
Frightening alicantesteve. x
No , we have idiots here too that get way too close 😮
You’d only be boating between bridges. Can’t get under them. Time to retreat to high ground and break out the emergency beers. 😬
andyslc did somebody mention beers? Now you're talking. x
Not got any better,still pouring over the top of the river bank. Causing chaos with the wildlife,there were dear running through the village last night and I spotted numerous hares close to the village hall this morning,something you don’t usually see.
@andyslc Ha ha,don’t need to get under the bridges now,just go round. Got plenty of emergency beer in thankfully.
Took these this morning,it’s slowly filling up. There’s one car submerged that the idiot driver abandoned yesterday,no insurance payout for him.
alicantesteve did you get a heap more rain overnight? We have had a load more and with more forecast for the weekend I’m glad I live on the high ground, Seems to be a lot of people who can’t properly assess the level of flooding, or even question how deep the water might be - if you ain’t sure don’t risk it,
Thanks for the dramatic pictures.
I think some know what you might mean by " thanks to the brown envelope gang."
Where are all these new houses going to go.
Land value and houses on high ground must go up in value.
Houses on high ground not good for snow though but we dont get much of that.
As for the Historical York
"Beware the White Boar House of York."
Thats awful ....there was a plus,at New Brighton the carpark at the Fort Perch rock was free to use .
