October Storm Batters Europe
Images from mainland Europe including Britain and the Netherlands where a strong storm battered on Monday, killing three people, cutting power and forcing hundreds of plane and train cancellations. Winds of up to 99 miles per hour (160 km per hour) lashed southern England and Wales, disrupting the travel plans of millions of commuters - the worst storm recorded in Britain in a decade. Heavy winds also swept across the low-lying Netherlands, uprooting trees and shutting down all train traffic to Amsterdam. They were forecast to peak at more than 130 kph by early afternoon.
