Vincent Fitzsimons, Duty Hydrology Manager for the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), said:
“We will be keeping a close eye on the Firth of Clyde through the coming days. A large storm surge is expected to coincide with the high tide in the Firth at around 7am on Thursday morning. This could cause some minor flooding in low lying areas of Dumbarton, Helensburgh, Largs and North Renfrew. Impacts could be similar to those of last week.
Furthermore, a strong south-westerly gale force wind could result in some spray and overtopping along exposed coastal roads and esplanades and we would urge people to keep checking SEPA’s flood update pages, here http://floodline.sepa.org.uk/floodupdates/ or call 0345 988 1188.”
