Aberdeen - flooding update

There has been localised flooding in Aberdeen which has resulted in drain covers and manhole covers being displaced by the force of water during the thunderstorm. This has led to a number of roads being closed. The council’s Roads Team has been split up across the city in in order to deal with the issue and are being assisted by four squads from the Grounds Maintenance Team.

A significant number of schools have been impacted by the weather, which means some will have a delayed start later today, and some will have to close for today. School staff are currently dealing with the situation and are contacting parents/guardians via Groupcall. For the latest updates on schools affected visit www.aberdeencity.gov.uk
