Winter Storm Brings Deep Snow to Swedish City

A winter storm with heavy snowfall brought parts of Sweden to a standstill on January 12 and 13.

The onslaught caused traffic disruptions and power outages, and forced some schools to close. In Langsele, outside Solleftea, passengers were stuck on a train for over 11 hours, local media reported.

A Class 2 warning remained in effect for several areas, according to local media.
