Around 4 000 households were left without electricity supply in Finland and another 3 000 in Sweden on Wednesday, January 13, 2021, after heavy snowfall struck the region.

In Sweden, about 3 000 homes were affected by power outages, according to Eon, noting that outages may go on longer than usual because it may be too dangerous to send out maintenance workers.

Up to 60 cm (24 inches) of snow accumulation was reported by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute in the northern region.

In southwestern Finland, around 4 000 households lost electricity, according to Finnish broadcaster YLE. 

Snow blanketed the country's southern area, with warnings for poor road conditions issued for almost all of the region.

While snowfall has decreased afterward, severe cold is expected to grip the region, with temperatures dropping to -25 °C (-13 °F) in the coming days.
