Up to 51 people have been evacuated from their apartment buildings because of a subterraean landslide under the Metro construction in Nørrebro in Copenhagen.

The evacuated residents will not be able to return to their homes until an inspection has cleared the situation.

“In connection with the construction some subsidence occurred due to a landslide, and it was decided that an evacuation was necessary,” Mads Firlings, a duty chief at Copenhagen Police, said according to Metroxpress newspaper.

“The police assisted because we have some systems in place to contact citizens and because you have to enter the apartments where there may not be anyone present.”

Some of the citizens have managed to find shelter with friends and family, while the company in charge of the Metro construction, Metroselskabet, has ensured that the remaining people have been housed.
