An entire house blew away in the storm last night in Patreksfjörður in the West Fjords.

Noone lived in the house and noone was injured when this occurred. According to Karl Vilbergsson, chief of police in Ísafjörður, the house did however cause damage and broken windows to two neighbouring houses.

The weather in the West Fjords is still very bad and there is still an alert level for avalanches.
