It’s only early September but…

…the first real autumn storm hit Iceland early this week. A large part of northern Iceland went without electricity, some for up to two days, and a few hundred travellers needed help from the rescue services. As many areas had not yet herded the sheep this year many farmers might have lost a substantial part of their livestock in this storm. Below are some videos from the Icelandic media:
