The rough weather in Iceland this past week has kept the Icelandic Association of Search and Rescue extremely busy, reports Vísir.

Yesterday Ársæll Search and Rescue Team filmed and posted a video of their efforts to dig out a car stuck in the snow.

As those who have left the house in the past few days know, Iceland has been experiencing some bad weather and road conditions remain precarious.

The Search and Rescue teams have had to assist many drivers of late—to stay safe consider checking out Iceland’s Road and Coastal Administration’s road map which documents the conditions of the country’s roads and website Safe Travel, which also publishes travel recommendations and alerts for tourists in English.
