Critically high water levels in Ätran - the rescue service builds ramparts


The rescue service has on Friday worked too full to prevent flooding in central Falkenberg. Along the Ågatan building, embankments are now being built against Ätran so that the water will not reach the properties.

On Friday, SMHI issued several warnings about high water flows. So far, the warnings are only for Class 2. But on its website, SMHI states that in the lower part of the Etran the flows are close to a Class 3 warning.

In such situations that exist in central Falkenberg right now, the rescue services have been assisted by MSB with materials. However, despite high water flows for several days in the county, this is the only time that embankments have been built.

- That's the only place I know. The masses of water have risen so much that they fear that it will flow over the edge now, says Conny Eriksson, internal commander of the rescue service.

Even further up the river Etran, at Gunnarp, there have been high water flows. Pictures from it are shown in the clip above.
