Snow can cause power outage in southern Norway

Residents in southern Norway must be prepared for the power outage in coming next day, Agder Energi alerts.
The company has put in additional emergency preparations before the snow.

24-25 millimeters rainfall is expected in coastal areas from Lindesnes and the east, reports the energy company. A little within the coast and in this height, precipitation comes like snow and slurry.

“Heavy snow on the network can therefore cause problems for the power supply,” Agder Energi writes in a press release.

The company encourages people to have alternative heating options, torches and candles available. They also ask to drain water.

“Agder Energi has increased the preparedness to be prepared as soon as a power failure occurs due to the reported weather,” the company reports.

Snowy trees that crossed the contact line closed Friday morning Sørlandsbanen between Kristiansand and Gjerstad. NSB set up alternative transport.
