Storm closed Öresund bridge to heavy vehicles
Updated 5:45 PM
Heavy winds in southern Sweden led Saturday to a warning for some vehicles to avoid the Öresund bridge linking Denmark with southern Sweden. The speed limit on the bridge was reduced to 70 kilometers per hour until late Saturday afternoon.
Cars pulling trailers, and light trucks and buses were told not to drive on the bridge.
A class-2 weather warning was issued Saturday for Sweden's southwest coast for storm-force winds and is expected to remain in force through midday Sunday.
When the storm reached the province of Småland some roads were blocked because of fallen trees.
