Hi all

Here are some statics about this flood. I did forget to send in my
previus post.

At this moment (12:47 UTC, 23.04.2006) this is amount of water that is
coming down the river skafta. The statics are from a place called Asa
Eldvatn in Skafta. Based on the latest data i can find.

~620m3/s is amount of water flowing, the higt is ~465 cm. But at other
locations, it is over 3 meterers and has overflooded a flood barrier. No
house are belived in danger at this moment.

Sorry for the spelling errors.
