The first is at Holderness Drain at Wawne Common and Woody Carr. The Environment Agency says immediate action is required.

Consequently, flooding of property/roads and farmland is expected. Areas most at risk are properties at Wawne Common and Woody Carr. No further rainfall is forecast for Monday or Tuesday.“We expect river levels to remain high throughout Monday. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking defences. Please put your flood plan into action and avoid contact with flood water.”The second is at the Hornsea coast. The Environment Agency said: “This flood warning remains in force for the high tide between 05.15 and 06.15 on Tuesday morning, 29/10/19 due to forecast overtopping caused by high tides and wave action. Flooding is most likely at high tide, however conditions may apply two to four hours either side of the high tide. “Areas most at risk are properties along South Promenade, Hornsea Burton Road, Grainger Road and Pasture Road and the Leisure Centre. Our incident response staff are checking defences and will operate defences as required. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads and coastal roads, which may be flooded. This message will be updated as the situation changes o as new forecasts become available.”13:44New alert issuedThe alert for the River Hull Central catchment remains in force due to high levels on the River Hull.The Environment Agency’s website said: “River levels are high due to recent persistent rainfall upstream.
