River levels are high but as yet there are no reports of river flooding. The main band of heavy rain has now passed through and the Environment Agency is not expecting any of the rivers to breach. Calderdale Flood Wardens are out monitoring at high risk sites as a precaution.
There are some instances of surface water flooding so please drive carefully and slowly if you do have to drive on a flooded road.
