Reporting floods well appreciated

Prolonged intense rainfall and subsequent flooding - recording events


The prolonged, intense rainfall this week was extreme, even by Icelandic standards. Localised flooding occurred and small streams on hiking routes became impassable. Travellers were urged to avoid all watercourses in the affected regions.

Most rivers will take days to return to pre-flood conditions, so there is still a reason for cautious travel plans.

With the foreword that safety is most important, reporting on these flood events is welcome, either current or afterwards. Apologies; the web form is still only available in Icelandic but fairly self-explanatory. Please have a go and comment in English, that would be well appreciated.

Participation is considered as a consent to further publishing of the individual reports.

Assistance with the filling of the form provided through Contact us or in +354 522 6000 during office hours.
