No travel day in South East Iceland this Wednesday/Thursday.
For the inexperienced driver, wind gusts can be deadly. The surges in wind speed can move all types of vehicles off the road. The wind gusts expected over the next few days are dangerous for all drivers. Not only is there a risk to losing control of your car, but there is a danger of stones being blown into car windows.
A few years ago a driver was in the same area with similar wind speeds. As they were driving along, all the windows on the left side of the car were smashed by blowing stones. Unwilling to continue, they turned around, only to have all the windows on the right hand side smash. This left them in great danger.
