Flood warning for Lossiemouth and some Moray coastal areas.

Press releases   •   Nov 27, 2019 15:19 GMT

COASTAL areas of Moray are at risk of flooding tonight.

SEPA has issued a flood warning, and says that strong northerly winds and spring tides mean that there is a risk of flooding from waves along the Moray coast, most notably in Lossiemouth.

The worst conditions are expected between around the hours of high tide tonight, with a risk from high waves between 11pm and 2am.

Moray Council are depositing sandbags for use by householders in Shore Street in Lossiemouth, and the Seatown area of Lossiemouth. These will be available by 5pm.

Conditions at Lossiemouth harbour, which is expected to be the worst affected area, will be closely monitored by a senior engineer and senior housing officer from Moray Council, who will be on site, and the council’s emergency response co-ordinator is available 24/7 to deal with any issues arising from potential flooding.

Members of the public are strongly advised to stay at a safe distance from harbour walls and coastal waters, where the risk to public safety from wave overtopping is at its greatest.

Detailed flood maps are available on SEPA’s website: http://map.sepa.org.uk/floodmap/map.htm
