Two more houses collapse into landslide pit in Gjerdrum, Norway

Landslide Danger Alert

On Sunday, the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) stated that two new houses have collapsed in the landslide pit in Gjerdrum.

“We received a message from Gjerdrum Municipality on Sunday morning that two homes have collapsed. This is an expected development and something we have taken into account,” regional manager Toril Hofshagen in NVE told newspaper Romerikes Blad.

She further noted that there are steep edges and slopes inside the landslide area and that there is still a risk that more houses may collapse into the pit.

“We are working on creating a construction road in the area. This work will continue from and including May 18,” Hofshagen added.

She also noted that residents in the area do not have to worry about a new landslide.
