Storm at Hustadvika.

Hustadvika is a 10-nautical-mile (19 km; 12 mi) long section of coastline in Fræna Municipality in Romsdal, Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It is located in the shipping route between the towns of Molde and Kristiansund. The area is shallow and has many little islands and reefs. The area includes the waters off of village of Bud and the Bjørnsund islands in the southwest and off the village of Hustad and Kvitholmen in the northeast.[1]

This is considered one of the most dangerous parts of the Norwegian coast,[2] and many ships have been wrecked along it.[3][4]
