The Scandinavians are well used to cold, harsh, storm-like weather conditions, so it’s no surprise that the rising seawater didn’t faze this bus driver in Helsingborg, Sweden.

A local named Martin Johnson, who was out watching winter storm Sven’s effects with his dad when they noticed the water bound bus, managed to record the video above before the driver made off down the road and into the town's centre.
