Over the festive period, Great Britain, particularly the west coast of Scotland, was battered by multiple severe storms that violently damaged the coastline and caused inland flooding from our burns and rivers.
In Galloway, due to massive amounts of rain falling in such a short period of time, all the rivers had breached their banks flooding fields, roads and a number of properties; Water of Luce peaking at 1.2m, River Cree peaking at 2.1m, Water of Fleet peaking at 2.4m, Kirkcudbrightshire Dee peaking at 3m and River Urr peaking at 1.8m.
