Storm Arwen: ALL Aberdeenshire schools to stay shut on Monday and Tuesday

Aberdeenshire Council has confirmed all schools will remain closed on Monday and Tuesday.

All schools across Aberdeenshire will remain closed for pupils for at least two days due to a widespread power outage caused by Storm Arwen.

Aberdeenshire Council has made the executive decision to keep all schools across the region closed as Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) works to restore power to various parts of the region.

The power firm has warned it might take “several days” until power is restored with 38,000 customers still without supplies following the devastating winds of Friday night.

All household recycling centres and vaccination centres will also remain closed on Monday, as the council has decided to stand down several activities in the interests of residents’ safety.

However, the Aberdeen City vaccination centre in the former John Lewis building on George Street is due to open as normal.

Household waste collections are also expected to proceed as normal tomorrow, but residents have been advised to anticipate some disruption.
