  • Description

    PARTS OF SCANDINAVIA ARE ENDURING THE COLDEST WEATHER THEY HAVE RECORDED IN NEARLY NINETY YEARS.

    THE COLD HAS BEEN SO INTENSE THAT IN FINLAND CARS CAN BE DRIVEN ACROSS THE FROZEN SEA TO ISLANDS OFF THE COAST.

    FURTHER SOUTH, IN DENMARK, THE WEATHER HAS ALSO BEEN CONSISTENTLY COLD, AND COPENHAGEN HARBOUR IS COVERED IN ICE, ALTHOUGH SHIPPING IS NOT YET ICE-BOUND.

    DURING THE PAST SEVEN DAYS THE AVERAGE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE IN COPENHAGEN HAS BEEN ONLY 23 DEGREES FARENHEIT (5 DEGREES CENTIGRADE.)
    IN SOME PARTS OF SCANDINAVIA EMERGENCY MEASURES ARE BEING TAKEN TO ENSURE THAT TRANSPORT OF ESSENTIAL SUPPLIES IS NOT HELD UP, AND THAT EXISTING POWER SUPPLIES ARE MAINTAINED.

    AND, AT A TIME WHEN SHOPKEEPERS EXPECT TO START TAKING WINTER CLOTHING FROM THE SHELVES THEY REPORT UNPRECEDENTED DEMANDS FOR WINTER WEAR, PARTICULARLY FOR LONG UNDERWEAR.
