NVE issues landslide danger warning for Eastern Norway on Saturday

The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) has issued a landslide and flood danger warning at the yellow level for large parts of Eastern Norway on Saturday.

The warning was issued due to lots of precipitation and locally heavy rain showers, the NVE wrote on its website.

“Some landslides are expected. Some major incidents may occur,” NVE writes.

There is a danger that exposed track and road sections may be closed. People are advised to stay away from steep slopes, streams, and rivers with large water flow and keep waterways free of gravel, rubbish, twigs, and leaves.

The precipitation forecast applies to the whole of Eastern Norway, except the former Telemark county.

Covid vaccine in numbers: PHE figures show LANDSLIDE of infections and deaths prevented

A total of 44,454,511 people have had at least one jab, affording them protection from up to 60 percent of infections.

And second jab totals are quickly catching up, with a further 32,583,746 given more than 90 percent of protection via complete dosage.

Together, health officials have administered more than 77 million Covid vaccine doses.

Dr Paul Birrell, Senior Research Associate at Cambridge’s MRC Biostatistics Unit, said the programme prevented an “astoundingly high” number of infections and deaths.

He added the vaccine gave the UK a “path back towards a normal life”.

And newly-minted Health Secretary Sajid Javid has confirmed as such.
