Hurricane Emma hits Germany and Austria, death Toll increasing


www.weather.com

At least nine people have lost their lives in Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic as Hurricane Emma struck central Europe.

One of Germany's high speed trains was taken out of action and several rail lines were closed as winds reached 190 kilometres an hour. Three people died in Germany.

In some areas, heavy rainfall caused flooding as well.

In Austria the death toll reached four, including two German tourists, with at least two of the people killed by trees blown down by high winds.www.liveleak.com...

For some reason I still cannot imagine a Hurricane in Europe, especially central Europe..

Just doesn't seem normal.. it would be like Ohio getting hit by a hurricane from the Lakes..

Which ironically happened once..

I agree and consider felix last year which was much worse



Hurricane Felix came ashore on Tuesday morning in northeast Nicaragua, near Punta Gorda, as a category five storm. Hurricane warnings have also been issued for eastern Honduras. Church World Service is maintaining contact with partners the Council of Evangelical Churches for a Denominational Alliance (CEPAD), in Nicaragua, and the Christian Commission for Development (CCD), in Honduras, to assess needs in the wake of the storm.

Hadn't seen anything about this on the news. Just talking to my Ma on the East Coast of England and she was telling me of the howling gales all last night.
It was the same here in Hertfordshire too with very strong winds all night.

Have to look up the weather pages for info on this.

Still didn't see anything stating it was a hurricane. The temps are too low and I don't see the classic shape of one. Not saying it's not a bad storm, just not a hurricane as far as I can tell. The title is misleading, provide proof of the naming of this storm by metorologists. Maybe Europeans label any very strong storm a hurricane, do they?

Hmm.... that seems to be the case

It´s not a Hurricane it´s just a storm with 110-130 km/h, nothing more nothing less.


greetings from germany.

it was very windy and around 3 in the morning it started to thunder and lightning struck several times near us but thats all that happened

we live 500m from the fire brigade and not once did they get called out for an emergency so all was well
