Xaver storm hits Europe as tidal surge threatens UK

LONDON, UK — On Friday, Britain assessed the damage of a storm that killed two people, forced thousands from their homes and threatened the nation with the biggest tidal surge in 60 years before moving on to Europe.

Severe floods wreaked havoc on the UK’s east coast. Waves several stories high smashed against seaside barriers. In the seaside town of Hemsby, homes tumbled downhill and were carried away by the sea like children’s toys.
