People will be allowed to briefly retrieve urgent items from homes in evacuation zones, except those damaged by Saturday’s avalanche, from 3 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, according to The Governor of Svalbard. The governor’s rescue helicopter will also be surveying the avalanche area on Sukketoppen during that time.

Those retrieving belongings must register with a guard at the entrance to their streets.

Sirkus Svalnardo is offering gymnastics activities for youths from 2 to 5 p.m. at Kulturhuset. A community meeting where local leaders will provide updates about the situation and psychologists will discuss the struggles common in a crisis is scheduled at 8 p.m. at Kulturhuset. The psychologists will be available in the cafe after the one-hour meeting.

Mark Sabbatini

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.
