COPENHAGEN, Denmark — A Norwegian woman showed her quick wits when filming a “dramatic” avalanche that was cascading down towards her home.

Gunn Gravem Isaksen told The Associated Press she was at home in central Norway when the avalanche occurred on Tuesday.

On realizing what was going on, she rushed out onto her porch and started filming the avalanche in the Kufonna mountain in the Sunndal municipality, a region widely known for its early spring avalanches.

Gravem Isaksen, a shop manager from the town of Furugrenda at the foot of Kufonna, said Wednesday that the video certainly “looks dramatic” but that first and foremost she was grateful no one was injured.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
