From Aberdeenshire Council communications team –
After a very wet weekend, ongoing partnership working with the emergency services and continued monitoring of water levels last night, the majority of SEPA flood warnings across Aberdeenshire are no longer in place.
Some road closures may remain until routes are assessed as safe and fully operational, and those in high risk areas where flood warnings remain should remain vigilant and take steps to continue to protect your property.

Aberdeenshire Council Chief Executive Jim Savege commended the community effort to help protect communities across Aberdeenshire during a particularly turbulent weekend of weather.
He said: “Our teams continue to go the extra mile to help protect our communities, working alongside our local resilience partners, assessing risk, monitoring issues throughout the night and liaising with contractors. Communities have really pulled together too and this all helps to mitigate against the impact of these unprecedented weather events. Thanks to all who have been working hard throughout.”
Individuals can register for future local flood alerts on SEPA’s website at: https://floodline.sepa.org.uk/floodupdates/ Private properties and businesses should ensure they are as prepared as they can be to mitigate against future adverse weather events.
