From the last night till this morning, the strong European windstorm, St. Jude storm hit Northwestern Europe including UK, France, Germany and Scandinavia, leading to four deaths, blackouts that affect 625,000 homes, major rush-hour disruption on public transport, and flight and ferry cancellations in Southern England.
