Closed because of storm

Storm in Skåne - Öresund Bridge Closed

The Öresund bridge connecting Sweden with Denmark has been closed for traffic on Wednesday afternoon after a truck was knocked over by gale force winds. The authorities of the southern Skåne province issued a general storm warning as a low pressure system progressing from the southwest unleashed gusts of more than 40 meters per second. 

Air traffic had to be re-directed temporarily as conditions at the Malmö airport were deemed hazardous.
