A flood warning - meaning flooding is expected - has been issued for properties in Main Street and Canal Head, Pocklington, after the level of Pocklington Beck rose to 0.5m.
In North Cave, properties on Denmark Rise, Mill Lane, Church Street, Blanshards Lane, Townend Lane and Newport Road are at risk. The level of North Cave Beck at North Cave is 0.53 metres and rising.
Meanwhile, in Bridlington, a flood warning was issued for the Harbour Road area, where strong winds could see waves overtopping the sea wall. However, this warning was cancelled at 11am today.
A number of flood alerts are in place across East Yorkshire, meaning people should be aware of a possibility of flooding.
Alerts are in place for the upper River Hull catchment area, including Driffield, and for the lower River Derwent, including Stamford Bridge.
Environment Agency officers are also monitoring drains in the Holderness area.
More wet weather is expected this evening and on Monday and the Met Office has issued a yellow warning for heavy rain, meaning there is a possibility of surface flooding and disruption to travel.
Phil Younge, Flood Risk Manager at the Environment Agency, said rain this evening could cause further flood risk, as land was already saturated and rivers were full.
He said: "Our teams have been out around the clock over the last few days to minimise the risks and prepare for flooding. We are continuing to deploy teams across the country to warn communities at risk."
