Storm Event

Severity ? 2

Receptor and Consequence

This event (possibly a continuation of the storm that caused flooding a day earlier) saw “considerable” flooding at Alloa (Hickey, 1997). At the shorehead the quay was flooded up to 100 yards [91.4 m] inland as far as the Mar Hotel. At Tullibody Island the Inch was almost completely submerged, and 35 sheep were drowned.
