Oppdatert informasjon -

Varselet for vestlige deler av Innlandet er nedgradert til grønt nivå da det nå er kjøligere vær og det er ventet mindre nedbør i området.

Consequence

Local flooding and/or erosional damage in streams and small rivers. Stormwater in urban areas. Extensive flooding, erosion damage and flood damage in exposed places. May cause closed roads and bridges.

Advice

Stay informed on the situation. Secure and/or move assets away from vulnerable areas (car, caravan along rivers/streams, basements). Cleaning of drainage paths and culverts is recommended. Keep away from rivers and streams with high flow. Emergency authorities must be prepared for the fact that building and infrastructure in general may be subject to serious incidents.

Description

Water discharge is expected to increase because of rain and snowmelt. This may cause local inundation where river channels are filled with ice and because of frozen ground. It also may cause ice drift in streams, with subsequent local inundation.
