The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) has issued a landslide and flood danger warning at the yellow level for large parts of Eastern Norway on Saturday.

The warning was issued due to lots of precipitation and locally heavy rain showers, the NVE wrote on its website.

“Some landslides are expected. Some major incidents may occur,” NVE writes.

There is a danger that exposed track and road sections may be closed. People are advised to stay away from steep slopes, streams, and rivers with large water flow and keep waterways free of gravel, rubbish, twigs, and leaves.

The precipitation forecast applies to the whole of Eastern Norway, except the former Telemark county.
