The worst storm in years is pounding Northern Europe, killing at least 46 people, knocking out power to millions and bringing most travel to a standstill.
As the storm moved east on Friday, forecasters reported winds of 200 km/h.
At least 14 people were reported dead in Britain alone, including a two-year-old boy who was killed by a falling wall in London.

Just to put things in perspective.....
1,205 people have died today, and continue to die everyday from smoking.
8,461 per week
waterlevel locally exceeded 5.6 meters above mean sea level.
Officially, 1,835 people were killed in the Netherlands, mostly in the south-western province of Zeeland. 307 were killed in the United Kingdom, in the counties of Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.
