Apocalyptical snow storm and avalanche engulf Longyearbyen, Svalbard at the end of the world

Sprinkled with more polar bears than people, Svalbard is the end of the world as we know it.

Svalbard’s only town of any size, Longyearbyen is currently being hit by an apocalyptical snow storm with hurricane-strong winds triggering a large avalanche that swallowed cars and houses.

This is the most violent storm at Svalbard in the past 30 years.

In Longyearbyen – the largest settlement on the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago – people stayed two days long barricated in their homes.

The natural disaster damaged 10 buildings – mostly two-storey wooden house – some of them being dragged several meters by a large avalanche at Mount Sukkertoppen.

Chaos as the strongest storm in 30 years sweeps through Svalbard.

This reminds me of the apocalyptical weather bomb in Iceland one year ago.
