Read Time:27 Second
Residents living in still-evacuated areas will be allowed into their homes for brief periods of time to collect urgent person items between 8 and 10 p.m. Monday, according to The Governor of Svalbard. Residents must sign in with a guard on their street before entering their homes.
The avalanche area, and homes destroyed and cordoned off by police will not be accessible.
Also, Svalbardhallen announced it will turn the swimming pool into a 30-degree-Celsius hot tub on the days it is open between Tuesday and December 31.
About Post Author
I'm a professional transient living on a tiny Norwegian island next door to the North Pole, where once a week (or thereabouts) I pollute our extreme and pristine environment with paper fishwrappers decorated with seemingly random letters that would cause a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters to die of humiliation. Such is the wisdom one acquires after more than 25 years in the world's second-least-respected occupation, much of it roaming the seven continents in search of jazz, unrecognizable street food and escorts I f****d with by insisting they give me the platonic tours of their cities promised in their ads. But it turns out this tiny group of islands known as Svalbard is my True Love and, generous contributions from you willing, I'll keep littering until they dig my body out when my climate-change-deformed apartment collapses or they exile my penniless ass because I'm not even worthy of washing your dirty dishes.
One thought on “AVALANCHE ALERT: Evacuees allowed into homes to fetch urgent items from 8 to 10 p.m.; Svalbardhallen to turn pool into hot tub starting tomorrow”
I send my condolences to family and friends of those killed in the avalanche,and hope those injured recover ok. Having visited Longyearben on a Hurtigruten trip in 2014 summer I can only imagine how awful it must be to have such a disaster happen in such an extreme environment.I hope they get things repaired soon.
