Three people are still missing after the landslide that occurred on December 30.

“The work has been going on all night, according to the plan that was laid out yesterday. 

“Teams are working their way through a house which is standing upside down. They’ve breached a wall and are working their way further into the house,” operations manager Terje Marstad in the Eastern Police District told newspaper VG.
