Moray residents can get sand from Elgin Academy and Elgin High School, while bags are available for the council’s Ashgrove depot.
In Aberdeenshire, sandbags are available in the Meadows area of Huntly and in Stonehaven, from the council roads depot at Spurryhillock Industrial Estate.
The red and white flood barriers are also in place in Stonehaven at the River Carron as a precaution, but there have not been reports of any flooding incidents in the town as yet.

Police are urging motorists to take care on the roads and to slow down as there is a lot of standing water.
