Doryl Aina Edwardson has been standing in the queue since 11.30, she says when Talkbladed speaks to her just after 11pm on Monday.
– It’s absolutely terrifying. It’s inhumane to stand here and not receive any information, Edvardsen tells Dogbladet.
Smaalenes Avis He first mentioned the situation to Edwardson. He was one of many stuck in the queue between Ørje and the Swedish border on the E18 in Indre Ostfold after heavy snowfall.
Pee in a bottle
Edwardson hasn’t eaten since eating a bowl at 11 p.m. As there is no toilet facility, he is forced to urinate using an old soda bottle kept in the car.
– I ripped the top off and slipped it down my pants – several times – and emptied it outside the car, she says.
– Once the underwear got wet, I had to cut the underwear at both ends. “Great, then I can use my panties as toilet paper,” I thought.
There is an elk guard on one side of the road and an intermediate concession on the other. Squatting in front of everyone in line isn’t particularly attractive, he says.
– It’s about dignity and expression, he says.
Fear for life
Edwardson says he called for help and information.
– I called the police, the National Roads Administration, the rescue center – no one could say anything. They cannot say how long we will stand here.
She fears for her compatriots in a line she estimates to be five to six kilometers long.
– It is not a matter that everyone lives in this order. Why is no one helping us?, says Edwardson.
says Arnolf Hansen, emergency coordinator at the Red Cross Smaalenes Avis They have been called for a so-called “safety check” to check if the occupants of the cars are alive.
– Cars run out of fuel, people may not have food or blankets. You could freeze to death, Hansen tells the newspaper.
Police have several emergency teams at the scene, but Edwardson hasn’t seen anything from any of them, he says.
– I had to get water from a trailer driver, and then I started crying with joy, he says.
Edwardson says she has good survival skills, but says she worries about the children, animals and sick people in line.
– This is a complete crisis.
Police do not know how long the stay will be. To Dagbladet, the operations manager of the police, Fredrik Solbakken, told that the road was closed to open a route from Sweden.
It is primarily heavy traffic that struggles to move forward, causing queues for others.
