Flash Flooding Craigton Place

Some more evidence of last night’s flash flooding. Residents at Craigton Place, Blantyre shared this photo showing how overwhelmed the storm drains were early evening Saturday 03 August 2019.

Water was bubbling up through manhole gratings, lifting covers with the force of the rainwater. With drains at capacity, flooding at the bottom of Craigton Place was apparent for much of the evening. It has since returned to normal.

We’re also hearing reports the heavy rain may also have affected the Calder riverbanks although water levels seem to now be back to normal.
