And it really was hot water – up to 88C.
“Units have reported almost zero visibility,” a Skåne police spokesman told The Local.
Local residents were even seen using wooden pallets to walk down the flooded streets so they wouldn’t burn themselves.
While no one was reported burned, the reduced visibility may have been responsible for the death of one man after a bus ran into a group of pedestrians.
