October 28, 2013 – (Reuters) –
“Hurricane strength winds battered Britain and the Netherlands on Monday, killing five people, cutting power and forcing the cancellation of hundreds of flights and train journeys before the storm barrelled further into mainland Europe.”
“Gusts of up to 99 mph (160 kph) lashed southern England and Wales today in the worst storm recorded in Britain in a decade, while Denmark and Sweden were bracing for the impact there.”
Among other precautions, Sweden has cancelled all passenger trains in the south of the country ahead of the storm's arrival; and people are recommended to stay indoors.
The TV news at 6 pm reported about 16500 households without electricity so far.
Around where I live we are still waiting for the worst of the storm as I post this.
