Scotland’s emergency services and Transport Minister held a Christmas Day meeting as flood warnings were put in place for northern Perthshire.
The public has been urged to check before they travel with Storm Conor preparing to sweep across parts of northern Scotland on Boxing Day.
The Scottish Government’s resilience team met on Sunday morning Sunday, chaired by Transport Minister Humza Yousaf, with representatives from the Met Office, Transport Scotland, Police Scotland, SEPA and key responders participating in the call.
SEPA currently have eight flood alerts in place covering Tayside, Caithness and Sutherland, Orkney, Scottish Borders, Shetland, Skye, Easter Ross and Great Glen and Lochaber and the Western Isles.
There are nine local flood warnings in Tayside and Caithness and Sutherland.
Locally, they are: Upper Tay, Pitlochry to Ballinluig, Logierait to Victoria Bridge, Innerpeffray to Bridge of Earn, Glen Lyon, Crieff to Innerpeffray, Carse of Lennoch to Lochlane, and Ballinluig to Logierait.
Storm Conor is expected to bring strong winds and rain overnight into Boxing Day with the most severe impact again expected to be felt on the Northern Isles and north Highlands.
An Amber ‘be prepared’ warning was issued by the Met Office on Friday, and in most cases operators have been able to contact passengers to warn them in advance of likely disruption.
Mr Yousaf said: “Of course many people will be travelling to meet loved ones and spend time with their families at this time of year and we would remind the public to check before the travel and delay their journey if they have to. Safety must be paramount and should take priority.”
