Flooding

An updated FLOOD ALERT has been issued for Fife.

Heavy thundery showers are likely to develop during Saturday.

Most places will stay dry, however if your area is affected by a heavy 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. Possible impacts may include flooding of low-lying land, roads, properties and disruption to travel.

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.

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 UPDATE is now in force until further notice.  If you haven’t already signed up to receive free flood messages, please call Floodline or register online at sepa.org.uk/floodingsignup.

Your Floodline quick dial number for this area is 23300
