Danger level for Veslemannen rises again

Large movements in the Veslemannen mountain are seen and weather reports says there could be more rain in the next few days. The NVE therefore raises the danger level for the mountain to orange level. Orange danger level implies increased monitoring and preparation for any red danger level.

“The movements in the mountain range are still high, and the mountain reacts with increased speeds of small rainfall,” says Lars Harald Blikra, Head of Division in the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE).

The daily rate is between 3 and 6 centimeters in the upper part of the mountain and just under 1 centimeter in the lower part.

Last week, the inhabitants under the mountain in Rauma in Møre og Romsdal were evacuated for the seventh time due to the increased risk of a large race, but once again the mountain stabilized and the evacuated could move home again on Saturday.
