An avalanche in Skagafjörður, near the town of Hofsós in North Iceland, has left 15 horses dead.
The avalanche occurred around 1pm on December 26. The Search and Rescue team “Grettir” was called to the scene, but all horses were found dead upon their arrival.
Residents and farms of nearby Unadalur are reported as being safe from the avalanche, with no further reported damage to property or livestock.
Rescue teams in Iceland have been very busy over the holiday season, with many roads left impassable in the winter weather, leaving many travelers stranded as well.
