Oppdatert informasjon - .

Varselet har blitt nedgradert fra gult til grønt nivå, på grunn av oppdaterte nedbørs prognoser. Med gjeldende prognose forventes det 30-60 mm/døgn i Sogn og Fjordane og 10-20 mm/døgn i Møre og Romsdal. Nedbøren vil fordele seg jevnt utover døgnet.



Heavy rain is expected.

The amount of water in the soil is significant. Steep slopes, as well as streams and river with high discharge are particularly exposed. Debris flows may reach the valley bottom even if they are triggered high in the terrain.
Danger increase Tuesday morning
Danger decrease Wednesday morning
Consequence Some landslides are expected. A few large events may occur. Exposed railways and roads may be closed. Debris avalanches/shallow slides: Soil slides and rapid movement of saturated soil in steep terrain. Debris flows: A "flood" of water, soil and rocks in steep creeks. Surface runoff in steep terrain can cause streams to change regular flow patterns.
Advice Keep away from steep slopes, as well as streams and rivers with high discharge. Keep water paths and culverts free of snow, ice, gravel, waste, twigs and leaves. Clogged waterways with dammed water may cause landslides.
