Severe blizzard hits North Iceland

Icelandic Met Office issued a blizzard warning for North Iceland on Monday, October 21, 2019. Due to sudden and harsh winter conditions, authorities have strongly advised people to avoid travel through the region until the storm is over.

Reports said the north has been buried under heavy snow, and ice across the region have already triggered minor accidents in Akureyri. Residents have then switched to their winter tires.

The onset of snow across North Iceland was sudden that it caught many residents off-guard. A weather alert for entire North Iceland warned of further blizzard conditions, and will likely continue until October 24 around 18:00 LT.

This means strong winds, low visibility, and icy roads will occur.

Met Office said some roads may be impassable due to these winter conditions. Residents are prompted to check both the weather and road conditions should they need to hit the road.
