A flood alert has been issued across Ayrshire by SEPA
A FLOOD ALERT has been issued for Ayrshire and Arran.
Heavy and thundery showers are likely to develop in the area through Sunday afternoon and evening. Thunderstorms are intense, localised, hard to predict and their flooding impacts vary.
Due to the very localised nature of flooding from thunderstorms, your specific area may not be impacted by this. If your area is affected by a heavy thundery shower, this may lead to localised flooding from surface water and small watercourses.
The greatest risk is if these occur over built-up areas and the transport network and possible impacts could include: flooding of low-lying land, roads, properties and disruption to travel. Further heavy showers may also develop in the area again during Monday which may lead to localised flooding from surface water and small watercourses. Possible impacts could 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 is now in force until further notice and was sent by phone and sms free of charge to registered customers of our Floodline direct warning service.
