Many still stranded after Stockholm blizzard

Crews at Stockholm’s Arlanda airport were forced to remove 200.000 cubic meters of snow in the wake of the storm, nearly as much as the 250.000 cubic meters removed for the entire 2011-2012 winter season.

Wednesday’s blizzard shut down the city’s entire train system for a time, with several other train lines cancelled and delayed all nationwide as they couldn’t reach Stockholm.

Many people are still stranded the next day.

While conditions around Stockholm appeared to be improving on Thursday, heavy snow continued to cause problems further north.

Snow is expected to continue falling throughout the night, dumping as much as 30 centimetres in the region.
