According to the Local, following the storm, residents could not even reach emergency services due to outages.
In some places, bad weather paralysed traffic, largely due to bridge closures, and a number of schools cancelled classes. Meanwhile, planes were forced to land at alternative airports, with some even having to return to their points of departure.
As of Thursday afternoon, there are still 28,915 people without electricity — 26,177 in Stockholm County and 3,883 in Uppsala.
