Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) has issued flood warnings for Sogn and Fjordane, Hordaland and parts of Rogaland.

Monday and Tuesday there is a danger of flooding in western Norway, and NVE warns of this possibility.

The forecast is yellow, that is level 2 on a scale from 1 to 4, and implies that there is somewhat great risk of damage due to particularly intense rainfall or snow melting.

The affected municipalities must generally be alert and implement preventive measures cleaning particularly vulnerable drainage pathways.
