Local message regarding flood and weather problems

Weather and local update from Cllr Paul Johnston

Dear Resident

At 10:30pm tonight the rain stopped… but the snow started.  There is a lot of flooding and considerable surface water on the roads.  However, as temperatures drop, the nature of the hazard changes from simple flooding to a possibility of ice on top of water or black ice and freezing rain.

The police advice tonight was not to take unessential journeys.

The flooding situation for rivers and burns will get worse until at least 1am to 1:30am with tidal effects and predicted river levels.  Please be vigilant for yourselves and neighbours you know at risk.  Please use the emergency number if you are in flooding danger.  Do not take risks.

Be careful out there.
