Jordras in Telthusbakken in Oslo


The police in Oslo report a landslide on the north side of Telthusbakken in Gamle Aker.

– The emergency services are on site. The municipality also sends personnel, the police write on Twitter.

There is currently no suspicion that anyone has been taken by the landslide. Assessments are now being made on how many homes need to be evacuated.

Operations Manager Vidar Pedersen tells Dagbladet that they were notified of the incident at 12.20.

– A resident called and reported that the wall of his house was partially broken. We then sent more resources, as well as fire and ambulance to the site, Pedersen says.

On arrival at the site, it was quickly confirmed that a landslide had occurred.

– There has been a landslide, but we are not aware of the size of it, he says.

Pedersen adds that they are now evacuating a larger area.

– It is conceivable that there will be new landslides, at least it can not be ruled out. Therefore, all houses in Telthusbakken are now being evacuated. No injuries have been reported, and there is no indication that anyone has joined the landslide, says the operations manager.
