Caravan flips on its side during high winds

On Saturday afternoon, strong winds flipped a caravan on its side on the main road between Kollafjørður and Tórshavn on the island of Streymoy. Luckily, there were no reports of any injuries.

On Saturday afternoon, strong winds flipped a caravan on its side on the main road between Kollafjørður and Tórshavn on the island of Streymoy, reports Faroese news webpage Jn.fo.

Luckily, there were no reports of any injuries, but traffic was, however, halted for a couple of minutes as the overturned caravan blocked one lane of the road, while the car which towed the caravan went off the road.

Police raced to the scene to deal with the incident.

As one might imagine, it has been very windy and rainy in the Faroe Islands over the weekend, but so far no other weather-related incidents have been reported to police.
