"It's a hell of misery, an ongoing jättekatastrof," says Johan Pensar, who lives on the island of Löparö."
"the Storm, Alfrida has long since subsided, but in Norrtälje, it is still a crisis situation."
"Of the 100 000 who lost power in Wednesday is still gone for 9 700 of Vattenfall's customers. The storm, Alfrida has hit Upplandskusten, Roslagen and Stockholm archipelago very hard, says electricity supplier."

"On the mainland, keep fire stations open, in order to provide with electricity and water. It is free entrance at the baths to the inhabitants in the municipality of Norrtälje should be able to keep your hygiene. "
"But on the islands it is tougher."
"– Many here are older and do not want to leave their homes, " says Johan Pensar."
"Saved by the mobile power generator"
"the Family Pensar has got the Waterfall to fly into a mobile generator, so they can help neighbors with electricity and water."

"When wet snow settles on the fallen form, it may be even tougher on the island."
"– There is so much forest that has been blown down, so this class 2-the warning was no picnic I can tell. When the snow weigh down the trees, they can crumble. So it's a hell of misery in the islands, it is an ongoing jättekatastrof, " says Johan Pensar, on the island of Löparö. "
"Waterfalls inspects helicopter -"
"a Total of 300 people are working feverishly to restore electricity and communicate with those affected, says the Waterfall."

"– It becomes a challenge for us but as long as it is safe for our employees and contractors to work, so we're going to do it, " says Annika Viklund to Aftonbladet."
"Can the severe weather conditions lead to extended power outages?"
"– It may do, if the trees fall and pull down power lines. In particular, it can be difficult for us to come if the trees fall across the roads. But we are continuing to work around the clock, regardless of weather, provided that it is safe, " says Annika Viklund, ceo of Vattenfall eldistribution. "
"”Contacting your mothers and fathers”"
"the Storm has also had an effect on home care and health care. Some health centers had to close and 400 of the 1 700 alarms for the elderly has turned out. "
"In the absence of functioning security alarms, have the home made extended visits – which, in turn, by the fact that the telephone network is down in some places."
"– We prefer that you contact their old mother or father to see that the situation is good. It is, as you understand a huge amount of people we had to take care of, " said federal director Christian Foster on the municipality's press conference."
