Storm crashes into coastal Norwegian towns

The storm Berit — named just before hitting coastal central and northern Norway — has broken through town flood defences in Ålesund, Kristiansund and Namsos.


Press pictures show Ålesund town centre flooded with seawater, while in Kristiansund guards are being posted at stores and shops ahead of a storm surge expected around midnight.

In Bergen, water levels are a foot below the oft-criticized harbour wall, and surging storm waters could enter the city over the next 24 hours.
