Storm Event

Severity ? 2

Receptor and Consequence

This event, associated with localised flood impacts in Scotland, was predominantly caused by fluvial sources, although some marine influence was noted (Hickey, 1997). On the east coast, Commercial Street in Perth was flooded, whilst on the west coast floods impacted non-residential properties in Helensburg. There was “extensive” river flooding at Crieff to thousands of acres of agricultural land. In Aberfoyle, damages of several thousands of pounds were incurred as several residential properties were inundated. The railway line here was also flooded. Local roads in numerous locations were submerged, and bus services were also affected in some places.
