This week thousands of households in Stockholm were hit by a power cut, after builders broke a cable.
“I just had my shaving cream on my face,” Dominic, who recently moved to Stockholm from London, tells Radio Sweden. He was in the middle of getting ready for work when all of a sudden, the power went out. He says he wasn’t prepared for it.
So that you can be prepared for unexpected electricity outages, Radio Sweden also asked the Civil Contingencies Agency for tips.
