Follow advice and check status from transport operators. Prepare your home for a potentially long power outage. The need for emergency preparedness shall be assessed continuously by emergency response actors. In advance consider measures to limit damage.

    ConsequencesIt is dangerous to be outdoors, and unusually large damage to buildings, infrastructure, forests and power supplies is expected. Expect cancelled departures for ferry, plane, or other transport. Bridges may be closed. Ceiling tiles blow off houses and buildings. Allow a lot of extra time for transportation and driving, even for short journeys. The power supply locally will be significantly affected. Many roads may be closed due to trees or other objects. Blowing snow causes reduced visibility and possibly convoys and/or closed roads. The strong wind may cause locally high waves in fjords and lakes.
