During these days a remarkable number of slides damaged Norwegian railways. April 16th a sandy railway ballast slid out near Skotselv station between Hokksund and Hønefoss. 5000 m3 of ballast slid into the Drammen river, and the railway was broken for a distance of 50 m. April 17th a slide between the stations of Viul and Hval on the Bergen railway took 1000 m3 of ballast, leaving 30 m of rails suspended in the air. A sismilar slide on the Bratsberg railway occurred near Nordagutu station. The railway was broken over a distance of 20 m. On the same day a new slide was reported near Skotselv, quite independent of yesterday's slide. 40 m of railway was laid waste by this one. Even at Djurdal station at the Numedal railway a considerable slide occurred. Roads near Larvik and Hønefoss were blocked up by different slides. April 19th a clay slide blocked the railway 3 km North of Eidsvoll station. Owing to concientious inspection by rail surveyors, these calamities caused no loss of human lives or valuable material.
