The national weather service SMHI has issued warnings for 8 different counties where this winter's unusually heavy snow is now melting and flowing downstream.

Gävleborg county has been hardest hit with the Norrala River creeping up its banks and flooding some nearby buildings.

To the west of that in Malung-Sälen municipality, officials there say the situation is under control for now, as long as the weather cooperates.
