europe floodStrong winds at more than 100km/h (60 miles per hour) across northern and central Europe has killed at least six people in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic, with authorities watching for oil leaks from a huge freighter that ran aground in the North Sea.



There was major disruption in the electricity lines. A large section of the rail traffic in the northern Germany remained suspended after heavy damage from fallen trees.



In Germany, railway operator Deutsche Bahn cited what it called “significant damage” on key routes, and said rail traffic on many routes in northern and central Germany would remain suspended until Monday.



Thousands of travellers were stranded as Bremen, Hamburg, Berlin, Hanover and Kiel all were cut away from the rail access Deutsche Bahn restored some service late on Sunday and provided sleeping cars at stations for stranded passengers.



The severe weather conditions not only just delayed and halted the traffic but also slowed the road traffic. Prague zoo closed because of the winds, but Prague airport was running without problems, newspaper Lidove Noviny’s website reported.
