Video: Peterculter residents evacuated amid frantic bid to save homes from Storm Babet flooding

Households on Culter Den, Millbank Terrace and Millside Road are at risk.

Peterculter residents have been forced to flee their homes as Storm Babet continues to cause chaos across the north-east.

Residents in the Culter Den, Millbank Terrace and Millside Road areas have been asked to leave their properties as water levels rise.

And others in the Aberdeen suburb are tonight battling desperately to prevent their homes from flooding.

Footage and pictures show how roads outside a block of flats on Millbank Terrace have become swamped.

Emergency services are currently pumping water out in a frantic bid to spare properties from suffering major damage.

What is flooding like in Peterculter area of Aberdeen?

More footage shows a house that has been deluged, with a floodgate at its front door and sandbags lying idle as water creeps higher.

The drama has unfolded after the Culter Burn burst its banks.

Elsewhere, cars lay dormant with the flood water rising up past the bottom of their tyres.

The police are assisting Aberdeen City Council by knocking on doors to inform worried locals of the impending threat.

A rest centre has been set up at Culter Village Hall on North Deeside Road for those unable to spend the night in their own homes.

Those heading there have been urged to turn off their gas, electricity and water supplies before evacuating – remembering to pack any medicine.

Peterculter flooding monitored by Aberdeen officials

A spokeswoman for Aberdeen City Council said: “We have been monitoring the site all day and sandbags were deployed at about 4pm.

“However, water levels in Culter Burn have risen further since then.”

The Peterculter flooding came as Storm Babet continued to batter the north-east, since bringing devastation to the region on Thursday night.

One woman has died after being swept away in Glen Esk, and a major search has failed to locate a man missing after becoming trapped in his car on a flooded road at Marykirk.
