Storm Clobbers Europe, Killing at least 15

Ad Feedback

At least 15 people are dead following the massive storm that plowed through Britain and Western Europe on Monday.

It's being called the "Saint Jude" storm and it's one of the worst to hit the region in years.

People in some areas saw wind gusts of up to 120 mph. One man was reportedly killed when a flying brick hit him in the head.

The wind and rain snapped hundreds of trees apart, flooded city streets, and stopped traffic in the air and at sea. Authorities at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport cancelled 50 flights, while citizens were advised not to try to ride bicycles because of high winds.

In northwestern France, thousands of families were left without power.

Germany saw at least six deaths, Britain lost five people, and the Netherlands and Denmark each reported one storm-related fatality.
