It would seem the only thing in the news yesterday and today is the #rvkstormpocalypse, so here’s a quick round up of all the varying ways in which the storm has bummed Iceland.
One man was sad to see his car destroyed by a fence that he did not recognise. “I have no idea where the fence came from,” Birkir Karlsson told Vísir. “But it hammered my car.” RIP car.
One boat docked to the harbour came loose during the storm but luckily, it was saved before being swept to sea. Unfortunately two other boats in Reykjavík harbour were not so lucky and have sunk. RIP boats.
Schools throughout the country have been cancelled today (Tuesday) though the schools in the capital city are expected to be open.
Buses won’t be driving before 08:00 am but should start up again then. Whether they will run on time is anyone’s guess.
The Oslo Christmas tree had to be dismantled before the storm so it didn’t fly about and destroy the surrounding properties. Hope to see you again soon Oslo Christmas tree!
Last but not least, the police expect the traffic to be something akin to the lowest circle of hell this morning.
