Residents across the north and north-east have been warned to expect more severe weather and further disruption tomorrow.
The red “danger to life” warning, which covers Montrose, Laurencekirk, Brechin and Inverbervie, has been extended until 11.59pm on Saturday.
Storm Babet has been ripping through most parts of the country since Thursday, causing chaos to travel and services.
Two people have fallen victims to the storm’s fury, while a search is ongoing for a man believed to have been trapped in a vehicle near Marykirk.
A 56-year-old man has died after the van he was driving was hit by a tree near Forfar.
Roads and households across the north and north-east have been left underwater after torrential rain and high winds hit the region.
And forecasters predict more is about to come, with around 70-100mm of rain expected to fall within the next 18 to 24 hours.
New alerts for rain and wind issued for Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire
The Met Office has issued several more weather alerts for the north and north-east, as residents still attempt to recover from yesterday’s harsh conditions.
A yellow alert for rain will be in force for Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray until 11.59pm tomorrow.
This is alongside a yellow alert for wind, which will be in place until noon.
The worst of the weather will hit western and southern Aberdeenshire, with residents warned to expect “heavy and prolonged” rainfall throughout Saturday.
The area affected by this stretches out to Banchory, Aboyne and Ballater in Deeside, as well as Alford and Inverurie in Donside.
There is an additional amber warning for rain for these parts, which will be into effect from midnight until 11.59pm on Saturday.
Met Office chief meteorologist Andy Page said: “This is not usual autumn weather.
“This is an exceptional event, and we are likely to continue to see significant impacts with the potential for further flooding and damage to properties.”
He added: “We have issued a second red warning covering parts of Angus and Aberdeenshire.
“This has the potential to cause further impacts in this already hard-hit area.”
Amber warning issued for the Highlands amid Storm Babet
Meanwhile, a new amber alert for rain has been issued for some parts of the Highlands.
This will be in place until Sunday.
Several towns north of Inverness are affected by the latest warning – including Dingwall, Alness, Dornoch, Golspie, Tain, Brora and Bonar Bridge.
What to expect amid Met Office’s new weather warnings?
The Met office is urging residents to take extra caution in the next 48 hours as Storm Babet continues to rage on across the north and north-east.
Most parts of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are still at risk of extensive flooding to homes and businesses amid the “danger to life” warning.
Thousands of homes have been left in the dark since yesterday, and experts predict there could be further disruption to power, water and heating supplies.
Public transport is also likely to be affected, while there is a serious risk some buildings could be damaged.
