|This is how near the river came to our house|
Because a) York folk are who they are and b) the telephone exchange flooded and cut off all our phones and internet, people went out on to the streets to see what they could do to help each other.
The army were incredible, delivering thousands of sandbags and lifting in spare parts to the Foss flood barrier by Chinook helicopter.
The kindness of strangers has been humbling and heartwarming. Farmers drove to our street late at night, delivering a pump to a family battling to keep the Ouse out of their house.
|Shortly before Dave got there|
The bridge in Tadcaster has just collapsed.
I don't know how much more the people can take.
Just hoping we all get through this.
