Flood update – no news is good news

With some dramatic flooding around York today, you might be wondering how the archive basement is doing. Our usual problem is with saturated ground, rather than the river level, so I’m pleased to report that all is well – but will keep you posted if we have any dramas as the water rises through the day.

If you want to keep an eye on the city, The York Press website is covering the floods and has some great pictures. For historic photos of previous floods and their impact on the archive see my previous post on flooding, or search our Imagine York photo catalogue for plenty more.
