Today 20 years since the torrential rain disaster at Fulufjället.

I came to think of the storm over Fulufjäll in August 1997 when I saw the devastation in the US and in Asia. Compared with that this was nothing but for our region as it was extreme. Small streams at the mountain side became raging rivers that tore away everything in its path, roads and bridges were washed away and Göljån took a new furrow. Among the debris you can see in the pictures were found a moose that was washed away with the water.

The pictures below are from 2011, 14 years after the disaster.
