Flood risk remains in Scotland

More than 40 flood warnings were in place in Scotland this afternoon as the after effects of Hurricane Bertha continued to batter the country.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency was continuing to monitor the situation after a weekend of heavy rainfall.

“Wet and windy weather is expected over many parts of Scotland on Sunday 10 August and into Monday, which has the potential to result in some localised flooding especially across the east and north of the country,” SEPA warned yesterday.

“We would advise the public to take care during commuting time on Monday morning in North-east Scotland in particular.”

Meanwhile, south of the border, the Environment Agency said high spring tides around the coasts this week brought a risk of wave overtopping and spray.
