date28 December 2013

Vincent Fitzsimons, Hydrology Duty Manager, from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) said:

Wet and windy weather with coastal gales is expected to sweep across the country on Sunday night.

"There is a risk of flooding in areas across Tayside, Central and Southern Scotland during Monday morning.

"In most of these areas, flooding will be restricted to low-lying minor roads, lands and isolated properties. However, the risk is higher in Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway. Here, there is a greater risk of more widespread property flooding.

"SEPA will continue to monitor the situation overnight and will be updating our website, Floodline and emergency responders as necessary. We would encourage the public to check the SEPA website (floodline.sepa.org.uk/floodupdates) or call SEPA's Floodline on 0845 988 1188 for the most up to date information on their area."
