Relentless rain across NE Scotland forces care homes to evacuate residents

Peebles Nursing Home Flood

Storms across North East Scotland have caused at least two care homes to be evacuated.

Twenty five elderly residents of a nursing home in Peebles (pictured above). The home is run by Mansfield Care Homes, which moved everybody to a nearby property after the River Tweed burst its banks and flooded the property.

Towns on the banks of the River Dee in Aberdeenshire were on high alert, with residents of a care home in Aboyne evacuated as a precaution.

“Aboyne, Ballater & Braemar are feeling the worst effects of ‘Storm Frank’ as towns all over Aberdeenshire are beginning to take precautions,” the newspaper states.
