Storm Ivar: Windy Weather Batters Christmas Shoppers In Norway (VIDEO)

Christmas shoppers were virtually blown off their feet in Norway last week as Storm Ivar tore through the region.

Footage of residents in Aalesund battling the wind on Friday was posted online, clocking up over a million views on YouTube alone.

The storm knocked out power in neighbouring Sweden and saw one man hospitalised after a tree was uprooted.
