Evacuation completed

The Governor of Svalbard decided to evacuate residences and hostels in Lia and Nybyen, this afternoon.

Since then the crew from Longyearbyen Fire Department has completed a door to door round, to notified the residents.

Most evacuated residents have ensured their own accommodation through friend and colleges. A smaller number have received accommodation through our housing office at Longyearbyen Local Government. We thank all evacuated and all who help in a challenging situation!
