Intense Storm Kills At Least 9 People In Europe

At least nine people have been killed in a powerful storm that has lashed Germany and Austria, police say, as rail companies struggle to restore service in the storm’s wake. One man was also crushed to death when gales caused a wall to collapse.

In Austria, a 63-year-old man died as he tried to fix his roof, while a nine-year-old girl was injured by a falling tree. Niklas also claimed a life in Switzerland, when a tree crushed a 75-year-old motorist. The violent storm spread across Scotland, Poland as well as northern and eastern France, before reaching Germany yesterday.

Road and rail traffic disrupted by the bad weather in central Europe returned to normal today. However, the storm has left many homes without a roof and tens of thousands of households without electricity.

The toll includes four killed in Germany and Switzerland when trees fell on passing cars, three German deaths when cars skidded after roads suddenly iced over, a German killed when a wall toppled on him and an Austrian man blown off a ladder to his death.

The cyclonic storm, named Niklas by German meteorologists, was one of the most powerful of recent years in central Europe.

At least nine people lost their lives after hurricane-force winds lashed northern Europe, the authorities said.

Seven people died yesterday in Germany, where Storm Niklas strengthened into a hurricane in some areas, packing winds of more than 190km/hr.

Three drivers were killed by falling trees, while another three died when they were caught in sudden snow and hail storms that battered the country’s south.

German railways said on Wednesday they were unable to provide full service because trains and staff were still being repositioned.

“Not all of our personnel can be at the stations where the schedule calls for them to be,” said a spokeswoman for Germany company Deutsche Bahn.

A main line from Munich, Germany to Salzburg, Austria was cut by storm damage.

Frankfurt airport, Germany’s biggest, had to cancel 180 take-offs and landings because of the high winds.
