BREAKING NEWS: Explosion In Oslo, Norway

Image from NRK

I’m absolutely shocked at what I’m seeing in the beautiful city of Oslo.  This afternoon a massive explosion occurred.  So far one person has been confirmed dead and several injured.  The cause of the explosion is currently unconfirmed but given that there aren’t really gas networks in Norway (it’s mostly electricity) it is starting to look suspicious. 

Thank goodness that it is holiday time in Norway which means short working hours and most people are away.  I just hope there are no more fatalities. 

I heard a huge bang earlier today but assumed it was thunder given all the rain we’re having today.  Seems that I heard the explosion from my home.  All I can hear now are sirens – something you don’t hear very often in Norway. 

You can follow the latest coverage in the following locations:

Number to call to check safety of relatives: 815 02800
