This season's first snow storm hit southern Sweden on Saturday, causing power cuts, traffic accidents and delays in social assistance in the home.

Lennart Helsing, spokesman for the Swedish Transport Administration, tells Radio Sweden that despite the complications there have not been any serious accidents.

"Often in this weather, the speed is quite slow, so you have lots of accidents but not so serious," Helsing says.

Swedish police registered 20 accidents during Saturday night and the early hours of Sunday, with trucks, buses and cars getting stuck in the snow or driving off the road.

"My recommendation is to keep low speed and the most important is to keep distance, because if something happens in the traffic, you need to have distance to other vehicles," Helsing says.
