Widespread disruption in North East as River Don bursts its bank
Parts of Aberdeenshire without power and transport
PARTS of North East Scotland are suffering acute disruption after the River Don burst its banks following more than a week of storms and rain since 'Storm Frank' landed in Scotland late last year.
Police declared a major incident overnight as 28 homes were evacuated in Port Elphinstone near Inverurie due to heavy flooding. 250 homes are without power in Ellon and Kintore after Scottish Hydro Electric deemed it unsafe to carry out repairs.
