Heavy storm to hit Norway. Strong winds and flooding expected from tonight. The storm is expected to reach many coastal regions, with water-levels reaching up to a metre above normal, according to the Norwegian News Agency (NTB). “The storm will drive a lot of water in towards the coast, at the same time as the water is absorbed by the low pressure system,” Magnar Reistad, researcher at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute tells the agency.

The storm is expected to reach many coastal regions, with water-levels reaching up to a metre above normal, according to the Norwegian News Agency (NTB).

“The storm will drive a lot of water in towards the coast, at the same time as the water is absorbed by the low pressure system,” Magnar Reistad, researcher at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute tells the agency.

Areas north of Stadt will be worst hit, with the storm reaching land during the course of tonight and tomorrow.

The flooding comes in addition to the relatively high tide, which is expected to remain so for the next few days.
