Now we have very severe storm going right now. Meteorologists have said this will be strongest storm in years. It has already hit Norway and Sweden, and now coasting to Finland. This storm is called "Dagmar"



This storm has hit Norwegian gas plants and led to reduced gas exports. It also left 100 000 Norwegians without electricity.

Storm is feared to be worst storm in 30 years. It first hit Norway and Sweden, now going to Finland and Baltics. Police has advised people to stay indoors. 60 000 household have suffered blackouts, most in Turku Archipelago and Southwestern Coast. www.aljazeera.com...



Even though we get highest wind speeds in December, this storm is pretty unusual. I would say this whole winter is unusual, 26th of December, and last night rain melted most of our snow. Temperature is +4 Celsius degrees.

Also there is massive oil leak in Bothnian Sea, and ships can't go collect oil because waves are over 4 meters high, when 2 meters is maximum wave height they can do their work.
