Eilean Siar Coastal Flood Warning Scheme

Nearly 7000 residents and businesses across Eilean Siar will now be able to benefit from 24 Flood Warning Areas to help prepare for the impacts of flooding. New modelling gives us more information than ever before about the potential coastal flood risk and impacts caused by storm surges, high tides and wave overtopping.

By registering with Floodline, you can receive free flood messages to your phone when flooding is expected. When flooding is forecast in your area, you will receive a message by phone or text to let you know a Flood Warning has been issued. The message will prompt you to visit the SEPA website for full details about the flooding situation.
