After a challenging 24 hours for homeowners, emergency services and agency partners alike, the region is trying to return to some normality.
Local authorities, water companies and the Environment Agency still have large numbers of staff across both sides of the Humber assessing water levels in streams, drains and rivers. Whilst Humberside Fire and Rescue Service has returned to something approaching normality, there are still staff and assets helping the recovery operation and are ready to stand back up should there be increased rainfall into and over the weekend.
The number of properties which flooded in our area is in the dozens rather than the hundreds, but the impact of even a few inches of water can be devastating for the homeowners affected.

Flood water can contain many hazards, so please don't enter standing water (however deep) as bacteria from sewers and the like may be mixed up with rainwater or river water.
