Second Red Alert Issued Within a Week as Flooding Persists from Storm Babet

The second “danger to life” weather warning, within a week, has been issued in eastern Scotland, as the UK anticipates heavy rain and strong winds. Meteorologists predict that an additional 70-100mm (approximately 4 inches) of rain may pour down on Saturday, further impacting areas in Angus and Aberdeenshire that have already been severely affected by flooding.

Three people have died since Thursday, when Storm Babet first took hold.

Flood victims across the country remain in temporary accommodation.

The new red weather warning began at midnight and will run through Saturday.

Amber warnings for rain are in place for Saturday across the Highlands, north east and central parts of Scotland, as well as the north of England, East and West Midlands and parts of Yorkshire.

Yellow warnings for rain and wind cover much of Scotland, England and Wales.

Angus Council – the area hit by the first red alert on Thursday – said it was prepared to call on the military for assistance if the situation in the region worsened significantly.

A 200-year-old bridge on the Rottal Estate in the area was washed away by torrential flood water, while a road connecting Marykirk, Angus, where some houses were evacuated, also collapsed.

Police urged people not to travel in the red zone, and said drivers throughout Scotland should show caution.

Assistant Chief Constable Stuart Houston said: “We’re going to see significant amounts of rainfall across all parts of the country.

“I think all drivers should be mindful about making journeys at this time. Plan ahead.”

Searches are continuing for a driver who was reported to be trapped in a vehicle near Marykirk in Aberdeenshire in the early hours of Friday.

Brechin in Angus was one of the worst hit areas as water levels in the River South Esk rose by 4.4m (14ft).

The council had urged people living in about 400 homes in the town and surrounding areas to evacuate their properties, but many stayed put and about 60 households were later rescued.

More than 70 people were being looked after a rest centres in Brechin, Montrose and Forfar on Friday, with locals donating dry clothing, food and toiletries.

After appealing for private landlords and Airbnb owners to provide accommodation, Angus Council said it had been “overwhelmed by the amazing response”.

Flooding caused 70-minute delays on the A1 near Grantham, National Highways said, while further south, Suffolk declared a major incident on Friday as Storm Babet caused “major flooding” across the county.

The rural village of Debenham was cut off by flooding, residents said, while tractors were being used to rescue people caught in the flood water.

Around 50 people were sheltering in the local leisure centre there and sleeping on crash matts, staff said.

Shelters in Scotland will continue to operate over the weekend.

What is a red weather warning?
Red is the most severe of the Met Office’s three coloured weather warnings.

It means that dangerous weather is expected and, if you have not already done so, you should take action now to keep yourself and others safe from the impact of the severe weather.

There is a high likelihood of a significant risk to human life, accompanied by extensive travel disturbances, potential disruptions to energy sources, and widespread harm to buildings and infrastructure. If feasible, it is advisable to refrain from traveling and instead adhere to the guidance provided by emergency services and local government authorities.
