In Municipalities of Sogn og Fjordane, some residents have been told to leave their houses on short notice because of flooding danger after fast melting snow on mountains.

Stryn, Lærdal, Flåm, Odda and Voss are the municipalities where the authorities see a danger of flood.

Temperatures are high in large parts of the county, and snow in the mountains quickly set to melt. There is uncertainty about when any rain comes, where it comes and how powerful it is, reports Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate.
