There’s been some terrible flooding here in Elgin today. Around two hundred households have been evacuated as a precautionary measure.
Here are a few random snaps which illustrate just how bad it is.
This is the main railway line looking up towards the station. You can just see in the distance a train sitting at the platform. The second picture is looking back down the line – absolutely no trains are running today, in either direction.
Shops and businesses have been badly affected and left with an awful lot of cleaning up.
And some roads have been completely closed to traffic. I took these photos this morning and even now the roads are still closed. The disruption in and around the town is terrible.
Apparently the storm was caused by the remnants of what was Hurricane Bertha. I’ve never experienced a hurricane and I hope I never do – what we had last night was bad enough.
