Severe Storm Hammering Europe Claims 13 Lives

LONDON (October 28, 2013) The death toll from a severe storm that tore across Britain and onto mainland Europe rose to 13 Monday.

The U.K. and Germany were hit the hardest.

Hurricane-force gusts knocked down trees, flooded low-lying areas, left hundreds of thousands without power and snarled transportation networks across the region.

U.K. officials reported at least five deaths.

Four people were killed Monday in Germany, adding to two deaths at sea off the German coast Sunday.

Danish media says one man was killed by a flying brick just north of Copenhagen, and police in Amsterdam said a woman there was killed by a falling tree.
