In southern Sweden water levels were as high as two meters over normal, but many were worried that Storm Urd would be even worse.

Reporter Anton Berglund, at Swedish Radio's Halland news desk, says every storm is met with a feeling of potential disaster, but when out talking to people affected he can see little damage.

Around 1,400 homes in Halland were hit by power cuts, but almost all now have their power back.
