High tides, heavy rain and gale-force wind combined to lash the north of Scotland last night. Fortunately, Cromarty avoided the flooding that brought transportation disruptions in Inverness and along the Moray coast, but high tides and wind flung seaweed along the Reeds Path and Shore Street.
It was timely that this was the week that SEPA (Scottish Environmental Protection Agency) launched an improved coastal flood warning system. Anyone — including those who live in, work or travel through areas at risk of flooding — can sign up to SEPA’s Floodline service and receive details on the likelihood and timing of any potential flooding threat.
