In Sweden, it hit Scania, parts of southern Kronoberg County and the west coast of Sweden. Circa 50 fishermen were killed, while very few people on land were killed. Material damages, were measured in millions of Swedish crowns as of 1902, were reported. The storm destroyed, among other things, open-air baths in Varberg, Mölle and Malmö (one in Ribersborgsstranden - the Ribersborgs open-air bath, and one in Sibbarp), and the Örgryte Church tower spire fell off.
