Rain and stormy weather

BBC reports:
Torrential rains have caused havoc across central and eastern Europe, killing up to 34 people.

Worst affected is Romania where at least seven elderly people were killed overnight - bringing the deaths to 25.

At least 11 people are reported dead or missing in Switzerland, Austria and Germany where emergency services are struggling to restore basic services
Meanwhile oil prices are expected to rise above US$66 a barrel because of "a gathering Caribbean storm [that] could knock out crude supplies to the world's biggest consumer." All this as the seductively named Storm Katrina heads towards Florida.
