The only town in the area where the warning has been issued is Seyðisfjörður, but on mountain passes, like Oddskarð between Neskaupstaður and Eskifjörður is a real risk. Earlier today, a large avalanche fell from the mountain Svartafjall, but did not reach the only road, number 92, to connect Neskaupstaður to the rest of Iceland, ruv.is reports.
