Hei! flommen Fetsund 18/9-1995

Hi! The flood in Fetsund

The flood was no problem for us. We lived on the heights.

But we knew some people who lived where there was flood, but it was just the basement that drowned. One person died in the flood, drowned. In the intersection by our house and in the ditch it was flooded.

The water was dirty.

There were a lot of mosquitos because of the flood, but the flood didn't affect the cities or those who put up sandbags, but the flood didn't get through the sandbags.But a lot of people had to move out of their houses.

When manyu people had to move I heard that there was a burglary in one of the houses. But luckily we didn't have to move because we lived on the hieghts. It was sad to see on TV that so many people in Gudbrandsdalen lost their homes, and the farmers suffered huge losses too. It cost a lot of money.

Greetings Jan Endre
