In the northeast of Scotland, some areas have experienced power cuts, with Vincent Fitzsimons, flood duty manager for the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa), claiming that: "We have seen almost a month's worth of rain in some parts already this week and we are expecting around the same again over the course of Friday and Saturday in parts of northeast Scotland."
