The Aila storm that crossed Finland has caused many types of damage and extensive power outages.
A compilation of storm videos posted by readers at the beginning of the story.
The storm is slowly starting to weaken, Tuomo Bergman, a meteorologist on duty at the Finnish Meteorological Institute, told STT on Thursday evening.
The Aila storm has retreated to the east.
Elsewhere in Finland, the storm has already weakened.
In the morning hours, the storm is still blowing on the eastern border, but after that it starts to be over.
Electricity is still cut off from nearly 60,000 households.
During the day, rescue services have reported hundreds of storm-related rescue missions all over Finland.
The storm has also caused significant delays in train traffic, for example in southern Finland.
Readers of Ilta-Sanomat actively described the damage caused by storm Aila in different parts of the country.
