Hurricane-strength winds whipped across southwestern Sweden on Sunday, leaving more than 100,000 households without power and causing major disruptions in train and boat traffic across Scandinavia, officials said. No injuries were reported, but police in Norway and Sweden urged people to stay indoors to avoid what was described as the biggest storm in the region since January 2005. The bridge connecting Sweden and Denmark was shut to all traffic, while nearly all train departures in southern Sweden and parts of Norway were canceled, as the strong winds felled trees across the tracks in several places. The central train station in Sweden's second-largest city, Goteborg, was left without power, and several ferry lines between Denmark, Norway and Sweden canceled sailings, officials said.
