Flooding outlook 28 November

  28 November 2015

Here's today's statement on the latest picture.

Richard Brown, Hydrology Duty Manager at SEPA said: 

"High tides on the Scottish Coast coinciding with high winds means our focus is on the Northern Isles and the Solway Firth where this may cause some impacts in low lying areas.

"These could include flooding to low lying land and roads around times of high tide, which may bring some local travel disruption.  However, there will also be sea spray and wave overtopping close to the coast and we remind people to take extra care in such conditions.

"Our live flood update page carries all the latest information about flooding potential and is a good way of ensuring people in the area know what to expect.  It can be accessed here http://floodline.sepa.org.uk/floodupdates/.

"SEPA has a new tool which allows people to share any flooding information they have and it can be found at http://www.floodlinescotland.org.uk/report-a-flood.  This 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"
