Britain Hit By Floods, Power Cuts At Christmas

Tens of thousands of Britons will remain without electricity on Christmas Day after torrential rainfall flooded homes and hurricane-force winds battered the country. Two severe flood alerts are in force along with nearly 300 secondary warnings, largely across southern and central England, Britain's environment agency said on Wednesday. Around 50,000 homes are likely to remain without power throughout Christmas Day according to the Energy Networks Association which represents wire and pipe companies. Tens of thousands of people have also had their power cut off in France where high winds and heavy rain were still sweeping across the south of the country.
