Storm hits northern Europe, causing deaths

A storm battered Britain, northern Germany and southern Scandinavia early Saturday, for a third day, with heavy rain, winds and storm that caused floods, power outages, and evacuations.

The storm, named Babet by the UK Meteorological Office, disrupted flights, railway service and ferry lines.

Reports said that at least four persons have died, with the latest victim being a 33-year-old woman, who was killed when a tree fell on her car on the Baltic Sea island of Fehmarn on Friday afternoon.

Three storm-related deaths were reported in England and Scotland on Thursday and Friday.
