Warning people to avoid landslide areas

Landslides have occurred in multiple areas in recent days, with people spotted traveling on foot through some of them.

A group hikes just above a ridge where a landslide occurred. Knut Aune Hoseth, regional director of the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE), is asking people to stay away from such areas.

Vei 300 between Museumsveien and Huset is closed indefinitely. There have been small landslides in the area and Longyearbyen's municipal government has closed the road to all traffic including pedestrians.

On Tuesday, the city posted a notice at their website reminding people that everyone is responsible for their own safety when they are out on a trip, especially since there have been a number of landslides in and around the city.
