Floods in Norway!!

11 Jun 2011 – Words Falling…

Previous posting implied that there is no flood here… ouch, now will have let those words fall or eat them!!! How many times must there be a reminder to NOT talk too soon!


From Aftenposten: Alerts flood water is rising rapidly in several parts of the country. And the worse it will be, alerts NVE… melting snow combined with the sharp rain over parts of Norway leads the flow of several rivers to have risen to unusually high levels… and the rest of the article is in Norwegian but too lazy to translate more!

Pix and info are downloaded from various Norwegian newspapers. The green areas in the map are where the rains are hitting, the darker the green, the heavier the rain! Some of the readers requested for more pix and fewer words, so this posting is especially for them since the words have either fallen or been shallowed 🙂 🙂 🙂
