> EUROPEAN STORM REACHES ROMANIA
Heavy snows and rain left more than 100 villages in central Transylvania
without electricity as the brutal weather plaguing Europe for the past week
reached Romania. The blackout occurred after the storm toppled trees and power
lines in Transylvania, about 450 kilometers (281 miles) from Bucharest. The
downed trees also caused a number of roadblocks.
Cleanup will take weeks -- recovery, years
