노르웨이, 산사태로 거대 '싱크홀'…어린이 등 11명 실종


오슬로 북동쪽 아스크 마을서 산사태 발생

싱크홀로 주택 여러 채 무너져 내리면서 실종자 발생


    노르웨이의 한 마을에서 대규모 산사태가 발생해 10명이 다치고 어린이를 포함해 21명이 실종됐다. 추가 산사태 발생 우려가 있는 가운데 주민 900여명이 대피했다.



30일(현지시간) AP통신 및 BBC 등에 따르면 산사태는 이날 오전 노르웨이 수도 오슬로에서 북동쪽으로 약 25㎞ 떨어진 그제르드럼 아스크 마을에서 발생했다. 경찰은 이날 오전 4시쯤 주민들의 신고로 산사태 발생 사실을 알게 됐다.


아스크는 5000여명의 주민이 거주하는 주택가로, 산사태로 지반이 무너져 내리면서 생긴 싱크홀로 가옥 여러 채가 빨리 들어가면서 실종자가 발생했다. 같은 날 오후 싱크홀로 가옥 세 채가 더 무너져 내렸다.


로저 페테르센 경찰 대변인은 "피해 지역에 주민이 갇혀있지만, 실종된 21명이 모두 그곳에 있는지는 알 수 없다"고 밝혔다.


헬리콥터와 드론이 생존자를 찾기 위해 싱크홀 수색에 투입됐다. 구급차 40여대도 현장에 투입됐지만 헬기로만 산사태 지역에 접근할 수 있어 구조작업은 난항을 겪고 있다.


60대의 한 마을 주민은 "오랫동안 지속된 두 번의 큰 울림이 발생한 후 전기가 나갔다"며 "이웃이 우리집으로 와 대피해야 한다고 알려줘 손주 세 명을 깨워 빨리 대피했다"라고 말했다.

Norwegian police were alerted at 4am Wednesday (local time) to the slide in the village of Ask, in the municipality of Gjerdrum, some 20km northeast of Oslo.


The landslide cut across a road through Ask, leaving a deep ravine that cars could not pass. Video footage showed dramatic scenes including one house falling into the ravine. Photos showed at least eight homes destroyed.

Police spokesman Roger Pettersen told Norwegian media there were no reports of missing people, but officials could not rule out the possibility of people in collapsed buildings. He said some 21 people registered to live in the area are unaccounted for.


"The 21 people may have evacuated themselves but may also still be in the landslide area," Pettersen told news agency NTB.

"It hurts to see how the forces of nature have ravaged Gjerdrum. My thoughts go to all those affected by the landslide. Now it is important that the emergency services get their job done," Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg tweeted.


In a separate statement, she called the disaster "probably one of the biggest landslides we have had, and with the biggest consequences".
