Flood warning lifted on Whitesands

The flood warning for the Whitesands in Dumfries is no longer in force, as the river levels are lowering and are now below flood warning thresholds.

No further significant heavy rainfall is currently forecast for today so levels are expected to continue lowering throughout the day.

The Met Office have issued a Yellow Alert of Rain for Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders this weekend, with many areas expected to experience a period of very wet and very windy weather .

They are advising the public to be aware that some flooding is likely, and winds could potentially cause damage to buildings and uproot some trees.

Following on from the flooding yesterday:

  • Whitesands is expected to open following cleanup operations.
  • A762 Ringford to New Galloway road expected to re-open today as Loch Ken water levels recede.
  • C12n Bankend Road in the vicinity of the college is expected to re-open today.
