The Icelandic government agreed at its cabinet meeting on Tuesday to support the Faroese search and rescue services with ISK 6 million (ISK 50,000, EUR 38,000) following the fierce storm which hit the Faroe Islands last month, causing considerable damage.

Five of the six million will go directly towards search and rescue and will be distributed in consultancy with the local search and rescue association and Landsbjörg (ICE-SAR), the Icelandic search and rescue association, ruv.is reports.
The remaining amount will be donated as part of a countrywide fundraising project for Faroese search and rescue which will take place on December 11, including broadcasts of concerts on Faroese and Icelandic television.
