The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and Orkney Islands Council are launching a new Coastal Flood Warning Service for Orkney next week.

The service aims to give Orkney’s coastal communities more advance warning of coastal flooding and reduce the damage and distress flooding can cause.

The new scheme will add 11 Flood Warning Areas to SEPA’s flood forecasting and warning services. They are: Burray and Ayre of Cara, Sanday, Stromness, Churchill Barriers, Scapa, Stronsay, Kirkwall, St Margaret’s Hope, Westray, Longhope and Hoy, St Mary’s and Graemeshall.

The service will be officially launched by SEPA and the OIC next Tuesday, September 18.
