The slide measured 650 meters wide and 150 meter deep and swept eight buildings and cabins in the area. Fortunately, the police have reported no injuries or missing persons following a search-and-rescue operation.
“There has never been a slide that big” in Alta, said Bjordal.
Jan Egil Bakkeby, one of the owners of a holiday cabin, shared that he “heard a crack in the cabin” and so he immediately fled.
He also told the media:
“At first, I thought there was someone in the attic, but then I saw out the window that the power cord was smoking and then I saw that it was raining.
“I rushed out and fled up the mountainside where I saw it all from a distance […] You can basically say that I ran for my life.”
