A fallen tree branch partially blocks a pavement in London, Monday, Oct. 28, 2013. A major storm with hurricane-force winds is lashing southern Britain, causing flooding and travel delays including the cancellation of roughly 130 flights at London's Heathrow Airport. Some rail lines shut down Monday morning, and some roads were closed due to fallen trees and power lines. Air travelers and commuters were advised to check conditions before starting any journeys. Widespread delays were expected as major London train lines delayed their opening because of the winds and tree hazards.
