Extreme Spring flood this year?
This year the river Klaralven, flowing through Karlstad, may experience an extreme spring flood. Last time was in 1995, when I remember people used to go down to the river each evening to estimate the margin before their houses would be effected by the water.
The reason why, one should be worried, is that the snow quantity in the Norwegian mountains in many places are more than 50-80 % than usual. The rescue departments in the county are although better prepared than in 1995, so perhaps the damages can be limited.
