Hurricane-force winds hit Britain and close in on Europe

Published: 12.05.13, 22:56 / Israel News

Hurricane-force winds cut transport and power in northern Britain and blasted towards mainland Europe, as meteorologists warned Storm Xaver could be the worst to hit the continent in years.

 

British authorities said the Thames Barrier, designed to protect London from flooding during exceptional tides, would shut on Thursday night and warned of "the most serious coastal tidal surge for over 60 years in England". Prime Minister David Cameron called two emergency meetings to discuss strategy. (Reuters)
