Hurricane and massive freeze in Qaanaaq
9 Dec 2016 · According to DMI a hurricane is raging in the Qaanaaq area of northern Greenland with gusts up to 50 meters per second, while the temperature plummeted to minus 22 degrees
These kind of temperatures are normal in Greenland in the winter, but it is extremely rare that they occur in connection with such strong winds.
Also, school in Qaanaaq closed because of storm.
Qaanaaq is located on the south side of a mountain. When deep cold air blows in from the north it’s like a cold waterfall of heavy air, with a chill factor close to 60 degrees below zero.
