Highland Perthshire Warned about Flooding

Yellow Indicates the Warning Areas

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) is warning Highland Perthshire about possible flooding in the upper Tay area this weekend.

They’ve issued a ‘flood warning’ which is the second-tier threat out of three, meaning low land area’s are at high risk of floods.

They said: “A flood warning update has been issued for Logierait to Jubilee Bridge.

“Rainfall throughout Friday will keep river levels high into Saturday when further rainfall is expected.

“There is a risk of flooding to low lying agricultural areas adjacent to the River Tay.”

These warnings come after ‘the Beast from the East’ saw heavy snowfall as high as 20cm and more in some places.

Because of the build up of snow and ice, the warm weather is starting to melt the icy weather which stuck after the heavy snow showers passed.

SEPA also said: “A flood warning update has been issued for Pitlochry to Ballinluig.

“Rainfall throughout Friday will keep river levels high into Saturday when further rainfall is expected.

“There is a risk of flooding to low lying agricultural areas adjacent to the River Tummel.”

The protection agency also identified a risk to ‘low lying agricultural areas adjacent to the River Tay and low-lying areas of the Aberfeldy Golf Course and Aberfeldy Caravan Park.’

The team added: “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 0345 9881188.  This FLOOD WARNING UPDATE is now in force until further notice.
