Oppdatert informasjon -

Varslingsnivået for fredag 7. oktober er nedgradert fra oransje til gult fordi det ventes mindre nedbør enn tidligere varslet.


Local flooding and/or erosional damage in streams and small rivers.


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.


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. Hydropower production will in some cases act as flood control, and therefore the issued warning will not necessarily apply to all regulated waterways.
