Listen to This: No Radio in Dýrafjörður

The village of Þingeyri in the fjord Dýrafjörður in the West Fjords has been without radio for three days after a blizzard last weekend.

State broadcaster RÚV’s two radio stations have been silent since Saturday after the transmitter on Þverfjall mountain was damaged, reports.

A repair team is scheduled to repair the transmitter once the weather improves.

The television transmitter is still functioning.

As reported earlier, roads are widely impassable in the West Fjords as well as in parts of North and East Iceland after heavy snowfall.

Electricity is also being rationed in the northern part of the West Fjords after a blizzard damaged electricity poles yesterday.
