The fierce North Sea storm "Kyrill," with hurricane-force winds of up to 191 kph (118 mph), roared through Germany on Thursday, as schools and businesses closed so that childrens and workers could seek safety in their homes. The storm even forced United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to cut short a visit to Berlin -- where she was meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel -- in order to fly to London before the winds grew too strong.
The powerful storm had already wrecked havoc in the Netherlands, France and Britain, and by early evening on Thursday, at least 12 people had been killed in storm-related incidents.
