"My house was OK in the end. It started raining heavily at 11am and this photograph was taken about 2.30pm.
"There is a slight gradient off the field onto the road, so I think that, and the amount of rain, caused the problems."
There were also reports of flash flooding in Beverley, Driffield and Pocklington on Sunday.
Driffield town clerk Claire Binnington was travelling to Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham when she came across the standing water along the A164.
She said: "It was a bit of a nightmare and quite disconcerting.
"I would say there was at least half a foot of water in the middle and even deeper at both sides.
"It was quite scary. Some people were turning around.
"Luckily, drivers were being responsible and cars were just taking it in turns and driving in the middle of the road."
A flood warning remains in place on the River Foulness and the Market Weighton Canal and their tributaries. It is due to heavy rain in the catchment.
The level at Welham Bridge yesterday afternoon was 1.46m above ornance datum and levels were expected to remain high overnight and into this morning.
