Total whiteout! Woman calmly films avalanche cascading towards her home in Norway

This is the dramatic moment that a cool-headed woman films an avalanche as it cascades down a mountainside towards her house.

 

 

 

 

The footage was filmed near Furugrenda, central Norway by 48-year-old shop manager Gunn Gravem Isaksen. Rather than panicking, Ms Isaksen stays put and films as the cloud-like snow barrels down from a snow-covered peak towards her home and another house in front.

Ms Isaksen later said she was at home when the avalanche started and immediately went outside to her porch and started filming. However, despite the dramatic footage, she said no one was in any danger.

The town where she lives lies at the foot of Kufonna mountain in a region widely known for early spring avalanches. ‘We’re used to avalanches here, but this one was huge,’ she added. ‘And no-one was in danger at any moment, we were not threatened.’
