River Flood Damage – across Yorkshire
Here is a list of the major rivers in Yorkshire that can contribute to local flooding across the region:
- The River Swale flooding – comes from the North West, merging with the Ure to form the River Ouse
- The River Ure – South of the Swale, flowing by Ripon before flowing into the Ouse
- The River Nidd – South of the Ure flowing by Harrogate before also joining the River Ouse
- The River Wharfe – south of the Nidd, by Ilkley and Wetherby before joining the Ouse
- The River Aire – by Skipton area before passing through Leeds to merge with the Ouse
- The River Calder – flowing by Halifax and Huddersfield before joining the Aire and Ouse
- The River Don – flowing by Barnsley, then through Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster
- The River Rother – which joins the River Don at Rotherham
- The River Ouse – flows through York before flowing to the Humber Estuary
- The River Foss – York’s second river, which joins the Ouse at York city centre
- The River Derwent – flows through the North Yorkshire Moors to join the Ouse by Selby
- The River Hull – which flows straight down through Hull into the Humber estuary
Several of these originate as Yorkshire Dales Rivers or from other locations in Yorkshire. We also have an article on where several of these rivers meet at their river confluences across the local area.
York and specifically on the River Ouse is the place where the infamous Viking Recorder river level monitoring station is, close to the centre. It reports on river levels and flood alerts for the River Ouse and the York area.

What type of damage is caused by floods?
The exact type of damage caused by floods will depend on a number of factors. This includes the source of the flooding, how extensive it is (including flood water height) and how long it remains in a property as long term flooding is likely to cause more damage than flash flooding. Flood damage will very likely affect both the building materials and also the content of the property. This is likely to require clean-up, sanitisation, disposal of waste, strip out of flood damaged items (that cannot be repaired) and eventually drying to help get the property back to pre-incident conditions.
What is flood damage restoration?
Flood damage restoration is the process of helping to get a property restored back to pre-flooding conditions. What this involves will depend on the details of the exact flooding incident. This includes the location, type of water, length of flooding and the details of the property affected. Flooding is likely to result in many items being flood damaged beyond repair which means they will need to be replaced. Flood damage specialists like us will help to evaluate the flood damage and help the process of restoring back to pre-incident conditions, especially when it comes to water damage caused by flooding.
