Much of the district is still recovering from prolonged periods of rain as well as Thursday’s snow, which caused a lot of meltwater that made roads hazardous on Friday.
Environment Agency flood alerts are still active for the lower River Nidd catchment area and the lower River Ouse
The Nidd alert, updated at 9.29am today, said:
“Areas most at risk include land around the lower River Nidd and its tributaries including Sand Beck, Sike Beck, Pool Beck and Great Gutter.”
Many fields around the Moor Monkton and Green Hammerton area close to the Nidd remain flooded.
The Ure alert, which was updated at 8.56am, describes the flood alert area as “low-lying land including agricultural land and local roads in the areas around Masham, Boroughbridge, Aldborough and Bishop Monkton”.
