Storm ripped off our roof!
The storm on Monday 7th of November ripped off half of our roof of the service section. It took off and landed 50m away from KHO towards Eiscat, right on top of the new magnetometer from PRIC. The Sensor survived the attack. Five minute average wind speeds were up to 30 m/s out of the Bolterdalen valley towards North. The Company Svalbard Bygg As has started the repairs.
