The unusually large floods are on the decline in Western Lapland
Spring floods rose to exceptional heights in Western Lapland due to last week’s rain and warm weather, which quickly melted the snow.
The largest flood was in River Tornionjoki, where an unusually large flood peak, which recurs approximately once every 50 years, took place during the weekend and Monday. In the city of Tornio, the flood peak was reached on Monday morning, when the water level reached its highest level for half a century.
