UK issues severe flood warnings; storm injures 9 in Germany

in #dlike4 years ago


Britain issued severe flood alerts Monday, warning of life-threatening danger after Storm Dennis dumped weeks' worth of rain in some places. One woman swept away by the floodwaters was feared dead.

To the east, Dennis' gale-force winds also injured nine people in car accidents in Germany as trees crashed down onto roads and train tracks. Flooding and power outages were reported elsewhere in northern Europe.

Britain's severe flood warnings were for communities in the central English counties of Herefordshire and Shropshire, but three other severe flood warnings were downgraded as the storm eased. By midday Monday, the Met Office, Britain's meteorological agency, listed 220 flood warnings for England, along with 20 for Wales and 11 for Scotland.
