UK weather – Brits to be battered by MORE rain after landslide and flood chaos | The Sun
BRITS are set to be battered by more rain after yesterday's landslide and flooding chaos.
The Met Office has activated new weather warnings stretching into the coming week in Scotland.
A yellow warning covers most of the region today, while a more sever amber alert lingers over central and eastern Scotland until 2pm.
The latter warns of a "danger to life" due to fast-moving floodwater, with homes and businesses at risk.
Some communities may even be cut off by power cuts and travel chaos caused by the flooding.
A number of train operators have cancelled their services north of the border, while some lines are under inspection.

Even the North is seeing clearer conditions, with 19C in Manchester and 16C in York.
The Met Office forecast for the day states: "Rain across northern Scotland slowly clearing eastwards during the afternoon.
"Elsewhere, after a murky start in places, a largely dry day with plenty of brighter spells and hazy sunshine."
