The inhabitants of the hamlet Slåtten in Jølster, which this summer was hit by floods and landslides was visited on Tuesday by Crown Prince Haakon.

Three months after the landslides, the families in the hamlet have still not been able to move back to their homes, where the landslide happened just outside their house’s wall on July 30

A man in his 50s is still missing and presumed dead after being caught by debris on the south side of Jølstravatnet.

– “Only marginal means that no more people were directly affected by this landslide,” says the Crown Prince to NRK.

Representatives from police, fire departments, the Red Cross and volunteers who contributed to the rescue work also met the Crown Prince. They could tell of the demanding work that was done in the hours and days after the landslide.

Crown Prince Haakon also visited the Reodor Club in Førde on Tuesday, where he got to test a flight simulator made by 14 young people.
