A rain storm in the early hours of Sunday morning brought renewed misery to home-owners in Fyvie.
After the rain on Thursday night which saw large areas of Aberdeenshire flooded on Friday, the improving conditions over the weekend were seen as an end to the flooding. Roads we re-opened and on Saturday people were taking stock of the damage caused and looking at starting the clear up.
Unfortunately for some people in Fyvie this respite was short lived. Heavy rain early on Sunday morning caused their properties to flood for a second time and the A947 to be closed again.
The Fordoun Burn had risen again due to the sheer volume of water and was racing through to join the River Ythan causing more damage to the buildings at Fyvie Garage
After a plea for help from one of the home owners in Fyvie, My Turriff collected sand bags and delivered them to two properties in Fyvie to try and help stop any more water damage.
At one property next to the Fyvie Garage the water had raced down the hillside across the road and through the house in the middle of the night, Hamish the home owner told My Turriff
It was fine at eight o’clock last night, everything was drying out, then is started to rain and the water came out of nowhere and started pouring in to the house again.
At another house in Fyvie, the water was just bubbling up out of the ground and coming up through the floor boards.
The Met Office weather reports for the next few days show that it is going to be colder, but more importantly drier, so hopefully the groundwater will get chance to drain away.
The A947 was re-opened at about 11am after the flood water had subsided.
