An avalanche fell from the mountain Heinabergsfjall last night on road 590 on Skarðströnd in West Iceland’s Dalir region. This is the third avalanche to fall on that part of the road in the last few days.

Guðmundur Gíslason, a farmer at Ytri Fagridalur, told Iceland Review that they are expecting two more avalanches over the next few days. “There is lot of snow on the mountain and sooner than later it will fall on the road,” he said.

For two days in a row the few children in the area have not been able to go to school because of the road closure.
