The Storm: Don’t Go Out!

By Iceland Review

From all over the country there are news of roof slates blowing off, windows breaking, trees falling, etc. About 350 people have been called out on search and rescue missions. The worst weather is in the Keflavík area at the moment, but winds are very strong in other parts of the country too.

The Icelandic Met Office warns: Dangerous gusts of wind can be expected (up to or over 50 m/s) north and east of mountains in North Iceland from the late evening until Monday morning.

Exactly now the wind in Reykjavík sounds like it might blow any building apart. Iceland Review editor and photographer Páll Stefánsson went out into the storm and his pictures will be posted on shortly and in the upcoming issue of Iceland Review magazine.
