Wind and snow are causing traffic disruptions across Sweden. In the Småland province, a bus carrying 21 people lost control and overturned north of Huskvarna.

Nine people have reportedly been taken to hospital and 12 others have been transferred to a local health center. According to rescue team leader Jerker Sture Dahl, it is unclear whether anyone was seriously injured, but all passengers were out of the bus when emergency services arrived.

A number of other accidents in the affected areas have been reported.

The Swedish Meteorological and Hydrologyical Institute (SMHI) has issued class 1 weather warnings for severe weather across the southern and central parts of the country.

There are three levels of weather warnings, with class 1 being the lowest. It warns weather could lead to risks to public safety and disruption of some public services.
