In December 2019, a long-term rescue operation took place following the fall of an individual in Núpá in Sölvadalur. Various dangers threatened the scene and a near-accident following a sudden water/ice flooding during the operation showed weaknesses in the implementation and organization of long-term rescue operations in high-risk environments.
