Updated Flood Alert Issued For Dumfries & Galloway

UPDATED FLOOD ALERT ISSUED SEPA

An updated FLOOD ALERT has been issued for Dumfries and Galloway.

Message issued at 10-08-2019 11:27

Rivers in the south of the area are likely to respond to heavy rainfall that has occurred during Saturday morning. There is a risk of flooding to low-lying land, roads, properties and disruption to travel from rivers and surface water.

Heavy and thundery showers then may develop anywhere in the area through Saturday afternoon and evening, although not all places will see them. This may lead to localised flooding from surface water and smaller rivers. The greatest risk is if these occur over built-up areas and the transport network. Possible impacts could include: flooding of low-lying land, roads, properties and disruption to travel.

During Sunday more widespread persistent rain may affect the east of the area. This may lead to flooding from surface water and rivers. Possible impacts include: flooding of low-lying land, roads, properties and disruption to travel.

Remain vigilant and remember, it is your responsibility to take actions which help protect yourself and your property.  Advice and information is also available through Floodline on 0345 9881188.  This FLOOD ALERT UPDATE is now in force until further notice.  If you haven’t already signed up to receive free flood messages, please call Floodline or register online at sepa.org.uk/floodingsignup.
