Southern Swedish Storm Heads North

Published fredag 27 oktober 2006 kl 14.45

The worst storm of the falls eason so far is heading for Stockholm – after toppling trees and power lines int he southern part of the country and temporarily stopping traffic over the Öresund bridge between the southern city of Malmö and the Danish capital of Copenhagen.

A number of ferry lines have cancelled traffic as well.

Thousands have been left without electricty in southern Sweden – and water levels continue to climb along the coast and in rivers and lakes – causing wide-spread flooding.

On the outer edge of the storm circle, there’s heavy snow fall in the north central regions – blocking roads.

The storm is predicted to be as bad as the infamous winter storm 2 years ago which devasted hug areas of forests in southern Sweden and left some isolated households without electricity for months in below-freezing weather.

Insect damage is still spreading in the region because of the large number of rotting trees left unharvested on the ground.
