The region suffered its worst flooding in 70 years. The water level in River Ouse is continued to rise. More than 100 soldiers are also helping emergency services in the hardest hit areas of West Yorkshir. “We are dealing with an incredibly serious situation, Prime Minister Cameron told Sky News, “The level of the rivers plus the level of rainfall has created an unprecedented effect and so some very serious flooding. We’ve decided to deploy more military resources, more military personnel, to help.”
