Plunging temperatures across Europe  

______________________________

7 Jan 09 - Plunging temperatures have sent shivers across Europe, leading to the deaths of several people and a record number of calls to power companies in Britain because of heating problems.

As the Paris area dug out from a rare snowfall, the Eiffel Tower remained closed for a second morning on Tuesday.

Heavy snow on Monday forced Air France to cancel 150 out of 400 scheduled flights from the main international Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport north of the capital, with some 3,000 passengers put up at hotels nearby and another 2,000 forced to spend a chilly night in the airport terminal.

In Poland, where overnight temperatures plunged to minus 25 Celsius recently, 10 people froze to death over the past few days, authorities reported.

In Germany, a 77-year-old mentally ill woman apparently frozen to death near the town of Weimar after being reported missing from her retirement home.

And the bitter chill killed two men and sent others to hospital in Romania on Sunday, where temperatures fell as low as minus 31C.

Further south, snow blanketed northern Italy, forcing Milan's airport to cancel or delay some flights.
