Storm Babet has been causing major disruption on roads across the region, with it being confirmed the A90 will remain closed today.

Traffic Scotland confirmed the route, which connects Aberdeen and Dundee, will remain shut between Stonehaven and the latter until at least tomorrow morning.

The route closed yesterday after Storm Babet hit the region, which saw hundreds of people evacuated from their homes in the Angus town of Brechin due to severe flooding.

The Met Office says “another spell of heavy rain will bring further flooding to parts of eastern and northern Scotland”.

With the A90 remaining shut, this is causing not just disruption to motorists, but to public transport as well.

Megabus has said that due to “ongoing weather issues”, they are unable to provide services between. Aberdeen and Dundee.

Issues affecting supermarket supplies

However, they have announced that passengers booked on any of these services will be refunded within the next seven days.

Due to the major route’s closure, it has resulted in supermarkets in the north-east having bare shelves.

Most of ScotRail services in the north and north-east are still off, although tomorrow’s services from Edinburgh and Glasgow Queen Street to Inverness will still be on.
