The evacuation orders have been withdrawn for parts of northeastern Ljusdal and part of Härjedalen, as of 10:00 AM on July 30. The decision means that residents of Kårböle, Lassekrog, Finneby, Gammelvallen and Degerkölsvallen outside the new evacuation zone can return to their homes. Road 84 from Vänsjö should be used for transport in Kårbole. Road 84 between Kårbole Östra-Laforen and large areas is still closed.
