A north-east road has been closed in both directions due to a fallen tree.
Police have urged motorists to avoid the A950 Peterhead to New Pitsligo road, which is blocked in Mintlaw at Aden Country Park.
Police were called at 5.20am.
A police spokeswoman said: “It looks like it is going to be closed for quite some time.
“The council is aware and is on site dealing with the situation, but it will take more than a day to clear.”
A diversion has been put in place through the Ball ringroad.
Officers have reminded motorists to be careful on all roads across the region due to strong winds causing an increased risk of branches and debris on the road surface.
