Flood warning is sent out for six counties around the Oslo Fjord for Saturday evening and night to Sunday.

This is a result of the powerful precipitation in this time period. It is expected to rain a lot in the lowlands and the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) has therefore sent out a flood warning for the lowland areas in the six counties around the Oslo Fjord.

The counties that has been notified is Telemark, Vestfold, Buskerud, Akershus, Oslo and Østfold.
