Flood outlook - 10 December

  10 December 2015

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

Frequent showers will affect most areas of Scotland during today and Friday, but overall we are expecting an improving situation.

“River levels currently remain high in Central, Tayside, and on parts of the Spey and around the Great Glen, but with no further significant rainfall forecast, rivers are expected to gradually recede during Thursday.

“Further showers will affect mainly coastal areas in the north of Scotland over the weekend, before outbreaks of rain spread north across most parts of Scotland later on Sunday and into Monday.

“We will continue to monitor the situation and the latest flood updates are 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.”
