A blizzard brought mayhew across Finland. Heavy snowfall accompanied by very gusty winds caused widespread damage. Over 50 000 households were left without power. Road conditions were very bad, because snow piled up quickly due to the strong winds. Over 10 approaching flights to Helsinki-Vantaa airport weren't allowed to land. Tram service in Helsinki was severely affected by the snow blocking the tracks. Railway and ferry traffic was also influenced.
