Without hesitation, he ran out into the street, where he filmed the process from the outside. Moments later he realized that he was “løp for livet”, which means literally “running for life.
An interesting fact is that about a day before the landslide came down, locals observed a kind of warning in the form of a rift on the road.

Drought in Ireland, a heatwave in Germany
Residents of Northern Ireland have experienced the worst drought in 44 years.
The spring of 2020 was the sunniest ever observed in the region.
The number of hours of sunshine exceeded the season’s average by almost 32%.
And the average spring temperature in Northern Ireland was 1.25 °C (one whole twenty-five hundred and fifty degrees Celsius) higher than usual.
Another factor that preceded the dry season was the prolonged absence or decrease in precipitation. For example, in some areas, it was only 52% of the average amount, while in some places it was only 15-25%.
I live in the Republic of Ireland, it’s a little bit further south, and we also had an atypical spring for a normally rainy island. And then for almost 3 weeks there was no rainfall at all, there was abnormally hot weather. That’s why the country is now in need of saving fresh water. There was a ban on watering homestead lands, it is also impossible to fill private pools.
Farmers note that this is the driest spring of all time. The duration of the drought may affect the decline in crop yield, which was also facilitated by this year’s extremely humid winter. Such variations in weather conditions are abnormal for this region.
And what are these fluctuations related to? And what global consequences can they have?
In Germany, this spring is also the sunniest in 90 years.
A new record has been set in the history of record keeping, it was recorded 100 hours more than the usual number of sunshine hours during the season.
Natural disasters that threaten the lives of people are becoming more frequent every day. And if we cannot avoid them, we can prepare for them and minimize their consequences. This requires basic knowledge and the desire of people to use it. Together, people can do a lot. Disasters force people to rethink their values and the Value of Life comes to the first place. Together, we can help ourselves and others survive the coming climatic events.
