Dozens of houses are evacuated in Aberdeenshire after its banks burst while individuals in a place of Aberdeen were counseled to depart their properties as well as the River Ythan threatened to overflow.
Teams from the coastguard as well as the Scottish Fire Service mounted an operation to save residents, some reported to be aged, near Inverurie, from 38 properties in Port Elphinstone, as the flooding Don sent floodwaters rushing down the roads.
As the Ythan climbed through the nighttime an additional 18 houses were evacuated in the Bruce Crescent and Meadows regions of Ellon.
A Cops Scotland spokeswoman said: “The Don has burst its banks in several positions in Port Elphinstone and there’s been localised flood on the other side of the region.
“Fire search and rescue lead on the evacuation together with the coastguard helping and cops are on the scene.”
Significant rain before weeks has seen causing leading travel dislocation, driving people from their houses and flooding across Scotland.
