The storm that hits southern Norway and northern Denmark on Monday will be so powerful that meteorologists now go out with an extreme weather alert. That means that the storm can threaten life and property.
- The storm seems to come a little farther south than we thought. People must prepare, says a meteorologist.
The storm Urd can affect large parts of southern Norway. She can provide waves of 25 meters, strong westerly storm and violent winds that rips up trees with the root, in addition to extreme water levels in the Oslo Fjord.
Wind of 25-35 meters per second can tear over the trees and throw around loose items, warns meteorologist.
However, when it it is about storms, it's about average wind, - an average of wind over ten minutes. That means wind gusts can be even more powerful. Up to 35-45 meters per second, reports Yr.
The storm will hit Norway and Denmark first and then move on to southern Sweden, before it goes offshore and disappears.
People are encouraged to stay indoors and not to go outside unless it is absolutely necessary.

Court: Swedish police must endure being stoned
Police officers who work in so-called "vulnerable areas" must tolerate being subjected to stone throwing. They are therefore not entitled to receive damages after having had stones hurled at them, according to a recent verdict by the Swedish court.
