Nordland police are asking people to secure loose objects and make the necessary preparations ahead of the extreme weather that is expected to strike on Thursday.

Extreme gusts of wind and severe cold will create major challenges in parts of Northern Norway from Thursday, the Meteorological Institute warned earlier in the day.

In Nordland, the police and other emergency services are preparing for the storm. 

They ask people to secure loose items and stay at home.

“Thursday and Friday is not the time to go into the mountains or take a trip out by boat. Stay home until the storm has passed,” police chief in Nordland Heidi Kløkstad said.

According to the police, the extreme weather is expected to arrive in Nordland by 1:00 PM.
