Two Dead in Autumn Storm

Published tisdag 15 november 2005 kl 18.20

Strong winds and heavy rain pummelled northern Europe yesterday evening, cutting power supplies and disrupting traffic and train services across Scandinavia and the northern Baltic region. Two people have been reported killed in connection to the storm in Sweden.

An 84 year old man was drowned while fishing in Lake Vättern and a 50 year old man was killed as he was trying to clear a fallen tree near Älmhult in the southern province of Småland.

Some 15 000 households in Southern and central Sweden were still without electricity at lunchtime today. Worst hit were the provinces of Småland, Värmland, Dalsland and Örebro. Fallen trees continue to block roads and railways tracks.

Two train derailments have been reported - no one was injured but damage to the railway line is expected to take 24 hours.
