Now the effect is that some 3,500 households are still without power. In Kronoberg county about 2500 household lack power, in Blekinge, 1300, Kalmar 1000 and in Halland about 900.  Authorities say it would take a long time before power gets back to these affected areas.

“It can be a lengthy process, as it takes more time per customer to fix the problems now. Yesterday we made a strong effort in which roughly 500 thousands at a time saw their power restored,” says Jacob Holmström, of energy company Eon's press service to radio Sweden.

A total of 700 people are working to resolve the power supply issue and in most cases the problem is that tree had fallen across power lines. Since Monday's storm, 100,000 of the utility's customers were without power.

It was reported that Vattenfall and Fortum saw their customers had power yesterday.
5,000 subscribers in the five most storm-affected counties are currently without fixed telephony. Yesterday it was 14,000 that were without.
