Massive rain, worst flooding on record hits southern Norway

A number of cities located on the southern coast of Norway have been struck by massive rainfall and severe flooding that started on September 30, 2017 and lasted until October 3, forcing people to leave their homes, while around 70 roads have been closed by the Road Administration.

Vest-Agder county was first to be hit by the unfortunate events. Many people of the city of Lyngdal watched helplessly how flood took away their houses, and in hurry fled the town in order to avoid death. Their escape was set back by the fact that the driving conditions were already difficult and a number of main roads were already closed due to the overflow.p>Source: Massive rain, worst flooding on record hits southern Norway
