Seyðisfjörður Mudslides: Residents Evacuated Again
Seyðisfjörður, East, Iceland
17 Feb 2021
There was heavy rainfall yesterday across the region. Rain combined with thawing snow and above-freezing temperatures are conditions that increase the likelihood of landslides. The evacuation from six streets was called “precautionary” as authorities are still evaluating whether the slope was destabilized following December landslides.
