A fallen tree branch blocks Herengracht canal in Amsterdam, Monday, Oct. 28, 2013. A major storm with hurricane-force gusts lashed southern Britain, the Netherlands and parts of France on Monday, knocking down trees, flooding low areas and causing travel chaos. Dutch citizens were warned against riding their bicycles because of the high winds. Amsterdam police said a woman was killed when a tree fell on her in the city and advised people to stay indoors.
