The Angry Sea at Stonehaven

video

The sea was still angry in Stonehaven on Sunday 23rd Dec. The above video shows the waves at the harbour where the MRI and the Boathouse suffered extensive damage last week. With the River Carron also bursting it's banks and causing flooding locals were praying things would calm down.

Stonehaven suffered again as the river Carron broke it's banks just after 2.30 am on Sunday 23rd December 2012.Emergency services were quickly on the scene. The short video above shows Arbuthnott St and Bridgefield as one Business owner clears her shop and the Emergency services tries to clear the water and debris.

The High Street in the old town was flooded again only 3 years after the devastation caused by floods in Dec 2009. 40 homes had to be evacuated. This is where the Fireballs Festival is due to take place  at Hogmanay - just over a week's time. The town is devastated but the local community are rallying round to help where they can
High St 10.30am Sun 23rd Dec 2012

This comes just one week after Stonehaven took a battering from the sea and this caused extensive damage along the sea front.

For some people this will not be a Merry Christmas and our thoughts go out to all those affected.
