Storm in Reykjavik harbour: VIDEO

Boats are in danger in the Reykjavik harbour due to the severe weather conditions and raging storm passing over Iceland this evening. The small boats in the harbour are at the mercy of the elements and are thrown around helplessly in the water.

One boat is on the loose and is crashing against the stone pier. Ironically its name is “Stormur” in Icelandic, or Storm. A team from the harbour authority is at the scene and will attempt to secure the boats if possible. Many people are by the harbour and boat owners are very concerned about their boats.
