The storm that rages across Nordland on Sunday, came surprisingly to people traveling in the mountains and for traffic in the province.
In the afternoon a follow-up with tourists was amazed about the storm in Stormdalen in Rana. Huge rainfall amounts to a sudden increase in the water levels in Stormdalsaga.
Do not lose the spot
When the journey had to cross the nesting river, a Danish woman stood on a sandbank in the 1920s while the water was around her. The escort, a Norwegian from Oslo, had recovered safely over the river.
When the man realized that the woman could not come over, he reported to the police. The phone coverage in the area is very bad, which created challenges in the beginning.
– However, we felt it necessary to send a helicopter to save her from the eleven, says operational manager Tommy Bech at the Nordland police station.
Mountain and well maintained
Both a Sea King rescue helicopter and air ammunition were present in the 18th century.
– The woman is taken away by Sea Kingen and she is in good condition.
The return journey is brought back to the place where they parked the car. The woman did not need health care.
– We are pleased that the campaign has received a happy result, says the operational manager.
