Flooding update - 15 January

date15 January 2015

David Faichney, Duty Hydrology Manager for the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) said:

"SEPA flood experts continue to keep a close eye on rivers in Easter Ross, Tayside and Dumfries and Galloway where we have seen high levels over the last twelve hours. 

The heaviest rain this afternoon will be over the Argyll, western Tayside and Great Glen areas and given the saturated ground conditions we expect to see rivers responding to this throughout today and into tomorrow.

We have received reports of some property flooding in low lying areas and we will continue to brief our emergency planning and response colleagues as more information comes in.

We are also monitoring data for any potential for coastal flooding along the Clyde coast as strong winds continue to be a feature and we are liaising with our partners there."
