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.
Varsom.no now provides a comprehensive representation of all alerts about natural hazards on land. Hazardous weather alerts come from the Norwegian Meteorological Institute (MET), while flood, avalanche, landslide hazards come from the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE).
The notifications are coordinated in terms of form, content and concepts. The hazard warnings are given with the color categories yellow (challenging situation), orange (severe situation) and red (extreme situation).
