"The police arrived in my work in the 18th century and said that I needed to be evacuated, and it was a very special and totally unexpected message to get," said Tom Mikalsen.
He lives in Eidsvåg in Bergen, which was hit by large bodies of water on Wednesday night, after a temporary dam burst into Munkebotsvatnet.
"It will be fully absorbed, it is 0.11 million cubic meters of water in Munkebotsvatnet," said Lars Grøttå, head of department for Flames Safety in the Water Resources and Energy Directorate of Norway earlier on Wednesday evening at NRK.
The dam broke out by 20:30. The water dropped to E39, Eidsvåg and the sea. Europaveien was closed beforehand for all traffic.
"It is estimated that this is 15 meters long and 6-8 meters deep," Chief Officer Tommy Kristoffersen says in the Bergen fire department at NRK about the defect.
Mikalsen works close to his house, which was threatened by the bodies of water.
"I have not been told how the house happened and I am worried," Mikalsen said to NRK just before 10 pm.
Three cars moved
A total of 133 people were evacuated from 37 homes, police chairman Ivar Kvant told NRK on Wednesday night.
Mikalsen stays at the Bergen Municipal Reception Center, which is located in Scandic Hotel in Kokstad.
At 22.30 an information meeting is organized for the approximately 40 people who stay there.
NRK is present at the meeting, where Monica Mørk of the police encourages the evacuees to stay at the hotel overnight.
"At the moment it is not possible to go back," says Mørk.
There are so far no reports of damage to homes.
"Three cars have moved on, but have not yet reached the sea and there are no reports of damage to people or buildings," said chief officer, Tommy Kristoffersen, at 9.45 pm.
Feared road flood
The reason for the shortage of temporary demersal in Munkebotsvatnet is big rainfall in Bergen on Wednesday. However, the water did not exceed the E39.
"The river has found a street under the E39," says Kristoffersen.
He states that what remains of the dam is stable and the police report in 22 times that the situation is under control.
"It seems that it has been calm, but it is too early to say whether the danger is over," says Kristoffersen.
"The water we thought would come down has come down, we have to look at roads and see that there has been no damage before we open, we do not know anything about material damage," said Per Algerøy, head of Operations , at 22.15.
The fire brigade puts lenses in the sea because the bodies of water have brought different objects.
– Things have been scattered; shelves, shrubs, shrubs and various things, says Kristoffersen.
Ship's dock damaged – boat owners are not allowed to add
Jan Ove Brakstad in the Eidsvåg-ship team says that after the flooding they were injured in the port, which according to him brought big stones down.
– There are many large and small stones. Some of them are very big. They came with flood water and crossed some large walls and crushed a fence. A lot of equipment has disappeared, says Brakstad.
He says that the cars that have moved are members of the boat team.
"The cars that belong there belong to three pieces that were sailing tonight and are not allowed to come back with their boats in the harbor.
E39 is still closed
The police have banned flying over Munkebotn and sailed to sea near Eidsvågen on Thursday morning. Two local bodyguards in Bergen have extended their opening hours to midnight.
The E39 will also be closed for a while. Although the water has not crossed the road, it is uncertain whether it is damaged.
"It has to be investigated and we can not say when the road will open," says Kristoffersen in the fire department.
Roger Nedberg Hille of the Road Traffic Center says that they have not yet registered that the water caused damage to the road network.
"We have large pipelines under E39 that have succeeded in getting the most out of them," says Hille.
Prepared for a new flood on Friday
The fire brigade raised the crew with two crew cars and extra management support on Wednesday, says Kristoffersen.
The crew tried to pump as much water as possible, but could not prevent the dam from bursting at Munkebotsvatnet.
Also on Friday there is a lot of rain in the mountain area.
"We have to keep up with the dams in the future, especially on Friday afternoon it seems to be a lot of rain," says Kristoffersen.
