Heavy rain expected between Thursday and Saturday has caused the Norwegian Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) to issue a flood warning.

Water-levels are expected to be at their highest in the smaller waterways on either Friday or Saturday, with the larger ones being affected on Saturday or Sunday.

The directorate asks house owners to check that all drains around their property remain clear, as heavy rain increases the risk of overflowing.

Caution is also advised in the vicinity of streams and rivers, as downpours increase the risk of slides, according to the directorate.
