Tilkynning frá almannavarnadeild ríkislögreglustjóra og lögreglustjóranum á Austurlandi:

  • Rýmingu aflétt á stærra svæði á Seyðisfirði
  • Áfram í gildi hættustig almannavarna á Seyðisfirði.

Sérfræðingar Veðurstofu Íslands könnuðu aðstæður í Botnabrún í dag og ekki er að sjá neinar breytingar að ráði frá því fyrir jól. Einnig hefur hreyfing verið mæld daglega og er hún lítil sem engin. Því er talið að stöðugleiki hafi aukist nægilega mikið til þess að hægt sé að aflétta frekari rýmingu.  Enn er í gildi rýming á því svæði sem er rauðlitað á meðfylgjandi korti. Staðan í farvegi stóru skriðunnar sem féll föstudaginn 18. desember og í nágrenni hennar verður skoðuð frekar á morgun.

Þeir sem eiga hús við neðangreindar götur geta snúið aftur:

  • Botnahlíð
  • Bröttuhlíð
  • Baugsveg
  • Austurveg

Þjónustumiðstöð almannavarna er opin á milli 11-18 í Herðubreið á Seyðisfirði. Hægt er að senda inn fyrirspurnir á netfangið sey@logreglan.is og hringja í 839 9931 utan opnunartíma.

Ogłoszenie Departamentu Ochrony Ludności Krajowego Komisarza Policji i Komendantów Policji we wschodniej Islandii:

  • Zmniejszona ewakuacja na większości obszarów w Seyðisfirði
  • W dalszym ciągu stan alarmowy  w Seyðisfirði.

Eksperci z Islandzkiego Urzędu Meteorologicznego zbadali dzisiejszą sytuację w Botnabrún i od czasu przedświątecznego sytuacja tam utrzymuje się bez zmian. Aktywność tam była mierzona codziennie i jest ona minimalna lub nie ma jej wcale. Dlatego uważa się, że stabilność na tyle wzrosła, aby można było zmniejszyć ewakuację. Ewakuacja nadal obowiązuje w obszarze zaznaczonym na czerwono na załączonej mapie. Sytuacja w obszarze dużego osuwiska, które miało miejsce w piątek 18 grudnia oraz w jego pobliżu, zostanie jutro dokładniej zbadana.

Ci, którzy posiadają domy na ulicach poniżej, mogą już wrócić:

  • Botnahlíð
  • Bröttuhlíð
  • Baugsveg
  • Austurveg
