Winds of up to 190 km/hour paralysed southwestern France. The worst storm since December 1999 blew in from the Atlantic and across southwestern France and northern Spain, ripping off roofs and flattening thousands of trees. Hundreds of generators were being delivered to retirement homes and other priority sites to tide them over until power returned. French weather agency Météo-France asked residents to stay indoors.

President Sarkozy sent troops to help restore services to more than a million homes yesterday after the fiercest storms in a decade killed 14 people in France and Spain.

Mareng Barb, Sa Bordeaux (region) talaga ang nakaranas ng grabeng ulan, baha at hangin. Awa nga ako sa kaibigan ko doon dahil until now di ko pa ma contact sa phone at wala pang electricity:(
