St. Jude Hits Northwest Russia, State of emergency Declared in Pskov 

The deadly storm reached northwestern Russia on Tuesday after wreaking havoc in several other countries in northern and northwestern Europe since early Monday, disrupting transport, power and communication lines in three northwestern Russian regions and prompting a state of emergency declaration in Pskov, said a report quoting sources from local weather agency.

Tens of thousands of people in Pskov and St. Petersburg were left without power, as the storm barreled through the region.

The storm knocked out power to about 100,000 households in Estonia and Latvia, which border Pskov Oblast.

St Jude left at least 15 people dead including seven in Germany, four in Britain, two in the Netherlands and one each in France and Denmark and knocked out power to about a million homes and business across northwestern Europe, including 750,000 customers in Britain.
