Three Avalanches this Morning

Three avalanches fell onto Óshlíd in the West Fjords this morning. The meterological office has issued a warning for further avalanches and the road administration closed the nearby roads.

Drivers are warned to stay out of the area. There was heavy snowfall in the West Fjords last night, followed by strong winds which make avalanches more likely.
