Thankfully high tides are at lower levels then yesterday yet a number of areas are to have their peak. Goole and Keadby are still to have high tide today and residents are urged to remain vigilant.
Emergency services and partner agencies are working hard to get the A63 open as soon as possible, the A1077 Barton to South Ferriby remains closed. Drivers are asked to take extra care as other routes are very busy. There are delays to bus routes and residents are asked to check routes before travel and to follow @EYbuses on Twitter for updates about their services.
Emergency services are continuing to work hard across the Humberside area to ensure people’s safety. Residents are asked to take steps to keep informed of weather updates by keeping tuned into local radio stations.
We will continue to update residents via our website and social media: follow us on Twitter @humbersidefire, like us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/humbersidefireandrescue) or visit www.humbersidefire.gov.uk.
