Iceland’s Worst Storm in 25 Years Causes Property Damage But No Injuries | Weather Underground

Monitor. At Bolungarvík on the Westfjords peninsula, a personal weather station recorded a wind gust of 96 mph, with sustained maximum wind speeds of more than 60 mph.

Icelandic authorities raised the country’s severe-weather preparedness level to “hazard” Monday in preparation for the storm, the Iceland Monitor reports, and 700 rescue workers fielded around 350 calls Monday, and are still working in the northern part of the country.

There were no reports of severe injuries to people as a result of the storm, said the Iceland Review, and the Iceland Department of Civil Protection in Iceland thanked the public for heeding warnings, which, it says, no doubt saved people from injuries.

But here were numerous reports of property damage.
