SWEDEN: ‘ THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE LEFT WITHOUT POWER AS STORMS SWEEPS COUNTRY ‘

Trains and ferries have been delayed and thousands of people were left without electricity in western and southern Sweden as a storm swept across the region. “This is a serious situation,” Eva Strandberg, a meteorologist at Sweden’s weather forecast agency SMHI told the TT news agency, “The forecast does not point towards the storm turning into a hurricane, but that could change.” The forecasters say the storm, called Svea, may spread toward Stockholm, Sweden’s capital, later Friday.
