Strong winds hit Sweden

26 Feb 2008

A storm hit Gothenburg in Sweden over the weekend, resulting in hurricane-strength winds and disrupting power supplies for many.

The Canadian Press reports on February 24th that more than 80,000 homes in the region suffered from power cuts following the storm.

One person was hospitalised as a result of the severe weather, while major traffic delays were reported and damage was inflicted on some buildings.

Trees felled by the strong winds blocked more than 40 roads in the city, as well as six railway lines.
