Good evening Citizen

The Met Office have issued an upgraded weather warning for much of the Scottish Borders region. We now have an AMBER alert for much of the central and eastern Borders from midnight tonight until 3pm Thursday afternoon. There also remains a YELLOW be aware weather warning for the remainder of the region so we are all going to see rain in the next 24hrs.

For full details of the affected areas and additional information on the warnings please follow the link to the Met Office website

The rain will start from midnight and by the morning commute we expect some very difficult travelling conditions and many roads will have standing water on them. Please give yourself plenty time for travelling and use dipped headlights and drive according to the conditions. If you are unsure how deep the water is please do not attempt to drive through but seek an alternative route. SBC will be monitoring the conditions and will provide regular updates on affected roads through our social media and local radio stations. Any changes to school transport will be also be announced on local radio and our social media platforms.

If your property is at risk from flooding please make preparations now, if you have floodgates have them ready for use, If you need sandbags then these can collected now from your local fire station or community store. You can find additional information on flood alerts and information on how to sign up to the SEPA floodline alerts through this link on their website

We will keep you informed as the day progresses through SB Alert and our social media
