An Aberdeen hotel has been opened up as a refuge centre after the River Dee burst its banks.
Riverside Drive has now been evacuated, as has the Bridge of Dee Court sheltered housing complex on Holburn Street.
Anyone who has been forced out of their homes due to the flooding can now go to Norwood Hall Hotel for shelter.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for Aberdeen City Council has confirmed the bridge will remain shut until a structural engineer can assess the damage caused by the flooding.
Chief Inspector Richard Craig said: “We are continuing to work with partner agencies to deal with flooding throughout the Grampian region.
“We would like to remind the public to avoid affected areas and to obey road closure signs. The roads are closed for a good reason and failure to obey these closures put you and emergency services at unnecessary risk.
“Members of the public should also avoid walking in flood water, no matter how shallow, as many man-hole covers have lifted and the water may be contaminated.
“Local authorities have sandbags available for residents whose properties are affected by flood water.”
Here is a list of all road closures across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire:
- Inchgarth Drive, Aberdeen between Primrosebank Avenue and Shaken Brig
