Flood Alert issued for Ayrshire and Arran Agra’s of Storm Ali
FLOOD ALERT - AYRSHIRE - STORM ALI
A FLOOD ALERT has been issued by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) for Ayrshire and Arran.
This alert is for coastal flooding.
Due to a combination of a positive surge, strong winds and large waves, there is a risk of flooding from waves and spray overtopping in low lying areas. Areas exposed to the west and south west will be most likely to observe flooding impacts.
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. If you haven't already signed up to receive free flood messages, please call Floodline or register online at sepa.org.uk/floodingsignup.
We continue to advise the public to avoid exposed coastal areas during times of severe weather and to remember that a photo or video for social media is not worth risking your life for.
Search and Rescue - it's what we do.
In a coastal, beach or cliff emergency dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
