Flood Warning

SEPA has issued a flood alert for Fife:

An updated FLOOD ALERT has been issued for Fife.

A spell of heavy and possibly thundery rain is expected across much of the region through Saturday and into Sunday. The rain is expected to start during the morning and give possible totals of between 25 and 35mm with higher totals expected over more eastern and coastal parts of Fife.
River levels across the region are currently low. However, rivers and smaller watercourses in the areas that are affected by the heaviest of the rain over the weekend will rise, which may result in some minor disruption.
There may be localised flooding issues in towns and communities across the region, with surface water and possible road flooding causing some disruption. The Flood Alert will be updated as further information is known.

Remain vigilant and remember, it is your responsibility to take actions which help protect yourself and your property. Advice and information is available through Floodline on 0845 9881188. This FLOOD ALERT UPDATE is now in force until further notice.

The Met Office has also issued an AMBER severe weather warning:

Rain will become persistent and often heavy across Southeast Scotland during the afternoon, spreading north into the rest of the East this evening and tonight. The rain will last through much of Sunday. Accumulations of 25 to 35mm are expected widely, with 60mm locally and a small risk of localised totals of 75 to 100mm in the Southeast.

Time to dust down your flood protection products ready to deploy just in case the rainfall is the worst case.
