Auchenflower station and a flood level
During the day I watch SES crews evacuate the next street over and flatmates see them swimming in the waters I assume checking on properties or something. The helicopter traffic overhead is pretty crazy and makes the day pretty loud.

Amazingly the water does not get much higher. It goes maybe a foot over the street signs and stops. We are all relieved but the river peak is not our only concern. Though the river peak might have been lower than expected the river damn is at breaking point. All flood gates are open to relieve pressure but it is sitting at 200% capacity, not that I'm a math genius but that's more than it can safely hold. We are not sure if the tap water is still drinkable or if it is contaminated and no power is causing problems cooking wise and lack for food is making things more interesting too.
