Storm and great danger of avalanches have made the Governor decide to evacuate Nybyen on Svalbard.
The decision was made after a meeting with avalanche experts from the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) on Wednesday morning.
- The decision has been taken on the basis of avalanche experts' assessments from NVE. We follow the weather information carefully and have regular contact, said Governor Kjerstin Askholt in a statement.
NVE announces a great danger of avalanches on Svalbard, and has updated its forecast to strength 4 - red - which is the strongest on the scale. Nybyen will be most at risk, and is therefore evacuated.
Svalbard, formerly known by its Dutch name Spitsbergen, is a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean.
