SEPA Flood Alert Orkney

A FLOOD ALERT has been issued for Orkney.

Thundery showers on Sunday afternoon and evening could cause flooding impacts from surface water. Particularly at risk are urban areas and the transport network and there may be difficult driving conditions and drainage systems struggle to cope with the more intense periods of rainfall. Due to the localised nature of the heaviest showers, impacts may be isolated, with not all locations being affected.

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.

Your Floodline quick dial number for this area is 22500
