New avalan­che at Hiorthfjel­let

A new avalan­che has descen­ded at Hiorthfjel­let on the north side of the Advent­da­len, oppo­si­te Lon­gye­ar­by­en. No one was har­med. Secu­ri­ty for­ces have inves­ti­ga­ted the site and found no dama­ge or trap­ped per­sons.

Hiorthfjellet

The evacua­ti­on of most of the house­holds in Lon­gye­ar­by­en has now been part­ly can­ce­led. Howe­ver, nume­rous houses in Rou­te 222, 226 and 28 still remain clo­sed to the resi­dents. They were able to get per­so­nal items from their homes yes­ter­day during the day. The avalan­che warning still exists.
