A Review

Avalanche events in Iceland – reported since the year 1118 – killed more than 680 persons by 1995 and several hundred may be assumed as uncounted victims in that period. However, the biggest disaster shocked the country in 1995, when two avalanches, in Súðavik in January and in Flatyeri in October, claimed the life of 34 people – a national tragedy that was comparable with the Galtür avalanche four years later in Austria that had the same number of victims. In total, 52 human beings lost their lives in Iceland between 1974 und 1995.
