East Sutherland on coastal flooding alert
The Caithness and Sutherland Emergency Liaison Group met this morning to prepare for the potential of coastal flooding affecting communities in Sutherland.
Due to a combination of higher than usual tides and a surge effect caused by Storm Brendan passing to the north west of the UK, a number of locations along the Moray Firth are considered at risk from flooding, particularly Helmsdale and Brora.
Flooding impacts have been monitored for the past few hours since high tide which was 1pm.
Highland Council and multi-agency partners are ready to respond to any impact. The public are advised to remain vigilant. Advice and further information is available through the SEPA Floodline on 0345 9881188.
