STORM Ciara caused a few problems for the Borders over the weekend, and more snow and wind is expected this week.

After high winds and heavy rain on Saturday and Sunday, Amber weather warnings have been demoted to Yellow across the region, with snow, wind and ice expected until Wednesday (February 12).

Flood warnings are still in place for Yarrow Valley, Kelso and Eddleston Water as according to Scottish Environment Protection Agency rainfall gauges, between 20 and 60mm of rain fell in the last 36 hours.

Heavy rainfall saw rivers swell throughout the Borders, most notably the Teviot, which caused part of the Bridge House Guest House in Hawick, which sits on the river's bank, to collapse on Sunday morning.

It is believed no one was inside the building when it collapsed.

The River Tweed at Peebles also burst its banks, flooding the footpath leading to Priorsford Bridge and the nearby Tweed Walk.

Local and national sporting events were cancelled or postponed due to the inclement weather, including the women's Six Nations match between Scotland and England which will be played today and has been relocated to Murrayfield from Scotstoun Stadium.

Rail disruption is expected across the ScotRail network, however, the Borders line is mostly unaffected, with warnings still in effect as a precautionary measure against any debris on the line.

Until Wednesday, Scottish Borders Council has warned that there may be travel disruptions and possible power cuts as 10cm of snow is predicted to fall with frequent lightning.

The local authority has also announced that for today (Monday) the B19 and the G04 school buses are cancelled and the 91 and P32 services are operating on amended routes due to road closures.
