Flood outlook - 11 December - 12pm

date11 December 2015

Pascal Lardet, SEPA's Hydrology Duty Manager, said:

The improving situation is expected to continue over the coming days and we have now removed all our Flood Alerts and Warnings.

“Spells of rain, sleet and snow will continue across Scotland during Friday before becoming drier in the evening. River levels remain high in areas of Central and Tayside but, with no further significant rainfall forecast, these are expected to gradually recede. However, people should remain vigilant due to saturated grounds and standing water in low-lying land in these areas.

“The drier weather looks generally set to continue over the weekend. Outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow are however expected for a period in the Scottish Borders and Dumfries and Galloway during Saturday afternoon.

“We will continue to monitor the situation and the latest flood updates will be available on our live flood updates page of the SEPA website. We also encourage people to sign up for free flood messages direct to their phone by calling Floodline on 0345 988 1188 or via our website.

“Members of the public can also use the recently launched Report–a-Flood tool to inform us of flooding incidents. SEPA will publish these reports online to increase awareness of local flood impacts and help keep communities informed of the areas most affected. Please note that Report-a-Flood is purely for information sharing and cannot be used to report problems, ask questions or report emergencies. Emergency situations should always be reported to the emergency services.”
