SEPA has issued a flood alert for Fife and many other areas of Scotland due to Storm Desmond.
The predicted rainfall falling on saturated ground is of substantial concern to Freuchie Flood Action Group. Predictions of 200mm over 30 hours would be devastating for Freuchie and many other at risk communities in Fife and elsewhere in Scotland.
Watercourses levels have already risen substantially overnight and continue to rise this morning.
Property owners are advised to start to deploy flood defences and ensure all are in good condition and functional.
