Storm Gorm reached its height at around 1am, Sunday, downing trees and ripping off roof tiles, as it passed through southern Sweden before moving on to the island of Gotland. Northern Skåne was worst affected, according to Eon.
The storm damage, on a par in ferocity to Storm Per in 2007, left 75,000 households without power. By Monday lunchtime, Eon communications manager, Torbjörn Larsson, tells Radio Sweden that power has been restored to many homes, but there is still some way to go.
"Last night 75,000 homes had no electricty. Now that figure is 28,000. We hope to restore power to all by the end of the week. We have a lot of teams out working, but for a small number of households, it will be several days before power is restored."
He says that the recent heavy rainfall left many trees exposed to the strong winds.
"The recent rain has left the ground soft and that meant that the trees were easier to uproot than if it was dry."
