Kiruna Moves

Published fredag 12 oktober 2007 kl 10.00

Fissures building under the Northern city of Kiruna threaten to swallow up buildings and residents alike. 

A century long evacuation plan is already in place but now, Swedish Radio Norrbotten reports that the ground is moving faster than expected.  Their City Hall could be affected within six years - ten years ahead of previous predictions.

Iron-ore mining underneath Kiruna means holes are appearing closer and closer to the city.

LKAB, a leader in the production of upgraded iron ore products, is behind the new prognosis and advises that moving the city sooner than expected might need to be discussed.
