– We are working ourselves to death, it’s quite chaotic with roofs and slabs coming off in the whole district, so now I can’t talk about it anymore, says the person who meets Nidaros at the other end of the 110 switchboard on Saturday afternoon .
An ongoing danger warning for strong gusts of wind has ripped off roofs around Trondheim as well. To Adressa, duty manager Lars Lunde at the 110 central says that they have been out on a call at Olavshallen and on Solsiden.
Two warning signs: – People must pay attention
It is also busy at the operations center of the Trøndelag police district.
– Yes, our operators are very busy. We get a lot of wind reports – trees falling, and roof tiles coming loose, says operations manager Håvard Høyem and points out that it is the Swedish Road Administration that should receive reports about road problems – such as fallen trees.
From all over Trøndelag, there have been close to 20 wind inquiries since a quarter to three this afternoon.
Among other things, Nidaros has received tips about sundolite and tarpaulins flying from a construction site in Tempe.
– We have been in contact with a caretaker in the block who was supposed to fix this. But sundolite is styrofoam, so it is harmless, but must be cleaned up.
The wind has also taken its toll on Tyholt. In Asbjørnsen’s gate, a tree blocks the road.
