The Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute issued a class 2 warning for northern Sweden on Sunday, its second highest level. As a result, Swedish traffic authorities have canceled all train traffic in the area between Sunday evening and Monday morning.
Norwegian news agency NTB reported the storm also has forced two ships on the scenic Hurtigruten route to a standstill in Trondheim. It said around 400 passengers were stranded in the town in central Norway.
