Six months on from the wettest February on record many homes and businesses in our region are still counting the cost of severe flooding.
Storm Ciara followed by Storm Dennis and Jorge saw heavy rain fall on already saturated ground in the Calder Valley in West Yorkshire.
Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd were badly hit and had barely recovered from the floods of Boxing Day 2015.
Flood defences being built in the wake of the last floods were not complete.
The Environment Agency says millions of pounds are being spent on flood defences and is waiting for an inquiry carried out by East Yorkshire Council to be completed.
In Mytholmroyd a new bridge has been built over the river which will help prevent a repeat of February's deluge.
Environmental expert John Grant from Sheffield Hallam University says new housing development should be subject to laws which make it compulsory to take into account the risk of flooding.
He points to a new estate at Waverley in Sheffield where a man-made lake has been constructed to drain away excess water and prevent flooding further downstream.
