On the 21st of October 2013, Norway launched its national landslide early warning service, which has played a pivotal role in increasing awareness and knowledge about landslides, debris flows, debris avalanches, and slushflows. The service provides early warnings, allowing people and emergency operators to take necessary actions, preventive measures, and be better prepared for possible incidents.
30th of March 2022 a group of five ski tourists was taken by an avalanche in Lyngen. One man died and three got severely injured.
NVE is hosting a 2-day workshop on multi-hazards and emergent risks in Northern Europe’s remote and vulnerable regions to be held in Oslo this week.
A new report describes the establishment of avalanche warning services in Svalbard from 2015 to 2018.
The Varsom app, now with a map of avalanche terrain for tour planning.
You can now be notified by email or SMS about both dangerous weather, floods and landslides where you live or travel. The Norwegian warning portal for natural hazards Varsom.no has been expanded and improved.
This app gathers in one place the most important features from the Varsom Platform needed in the outdoors, for field inspections and for readiness, crisis management and rescue situations. Observations from regobs.no, warnings from varsom.no, and support maps from xgeo.no and iskart.no are included.
You get no danger signs, the snowpack seems stable, and the avalanche danger level might even be moderate. Suddenly a big avalanche is released out of the blue. What happens? How is it possible?
