The official severe-weather preparedness level in South Iceland and the Westman Islands has been lowered from ‘hazard’ to ‘alert’.

Alert levels are falling across the country as the severe weather system which lashed the country yesterday and through the night slowly passes.

There are no longer any ‘hazard’ levels in place, but the whole country is still on ‘alert’. There is a specific alert level in place in East Iceland and central parts of North Iceland in the face of possible avalanches.

Many roads are still closed (see here).
