The storm “Ivar” is bearing down on Norway as we speak, but damn it, there’s Christmas shopping to do.
Norwegians in downtown Aalesund braved the unbelievably strong winds yesterday to fill their shopping lists, and as you can see in the video above, it was no small feat. We don’t know exactly how strong the winds were, but they reportedly blew one guy clear off his feet. That guy later needed an ambulance.
Police were on scene to assist citizens, but what the heck were they going to do, amirite?
Ivar is reportedly continuing towards Trondelag and an estimated 20,000 have lost power. Buses and boats have been suspended, and authorities are asking people to just stay home. Yeah, but then how would reddit entertain itself?
