Oslo, Norway (Ahmed Tanveer): One person was evacuated and brought to safety after the landslide at Kråkneset in Alta municipality. A total of eight buildings were swept on the sea in the 650-meter landslide. Due to high landslide danger, the police have still not entered the area. On Wednesday afternoon, a 650 meter wide and 160 meter deep landslide occurred on the west side of Kråkneset in Talvik in Alta municipality. All of the available rescue personnel were called out when police received the first reports at. 15.45. Just before 7 o’clock, the rescue operation ended. The landslide carried large masses into the Altafjord, and at 19 o’clock there are still several small landslides. NVE is on site and assesses the avalanche danger in the area. This needs to be clarified before rescue personnel can go in and search. It will probably continue to rage for one to two more days. It will probably not be safe to stay for a long time, says district engineer Anders Bjordal of NVE. There are several holiday homes in the area. A residence where one person stayed was evacuated. The house was not demolished and is still standing,” says operations manager Torfinn Halvari in Finnmark police district. (Please send your news, article, pictorial on our email address <editor@enewspaper.com.pk> & WhatsApp +923132434567 PLEASE SEND YOUR COMMENTS Thanks)
