Iceland's route 1 probably to be closed at 6 pm due to storm

Reynir Gunnarsson, managing director at the Höfn road administration office has told that the route no.1 will probably be closed between Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon and Kirkjubæjarklaustur at 6 pm. At that time the situation will be assessed.

The weather forecast predicts a storm across Iceland with gusts of wind particularly bad in the south east area. If the weather forecast stays the same, road closures could continue until noon tomorrow.
