A FLOOD ALERT has been issued for Orkney.

This Flood Alert is for coastal flooding. 

On Friday into Saturday, high tides are expected to affect the area due to a storm surge and large waves associated with Storm Callum. The greatest risk is expected on Saturday at around 2:45am. Localised flooding to low-lying land and roads is likely. Spray and wave overtopping along coastal roads and sea fronts is also possible.

SEPA will continue to monitor the situation and further updates will appear here if the situation changes.

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.
