ICE-SAR Hard at Work Freeing Stranded Vehicles During Friday Blizzard

As many as 80 Search and Rescue members were called out to help people in weather-related difficulties on Friday, mbl.is reports.

Yellow and Orange weather advisories were in effect throughout the country on Friday, with hurricane-strength winds and blizzard conditions making driving particularly dangerous.

Unsurprisingly, then, one of ICE-SAR’s primary tasks that day was to help drivers dig out their cars after becoming stuck in snowdrifts or sliding off of icy roads. Around twenty Search and Rescue volunteers went to work on the Eyjafjörður fjord in North Iceland, where multiple cars had gotten stuck, but there were also call-outs around towns in East Iceland, South Iceland, and around the capital area.
