Heavy storms hit parts of Europe, killing at least six people, injuring scores and damaging houses, according to media reports Saturday. Southern Poland was hardest hit, with three deaths and 34 injuries when a tornado and heavy rain storms late Friday tore the roofs off homes, knocked down trees and overturned vehicles. In the Italian Alps, a guide found two bodies on the Monte Rosa peak in the Aosta region, at an altitude of 4,000 meters on Saturday. Authorities said the victims, a man from the Netherlands and another man from Britain, apparently froze to death during a storm that hit the mountain on Friday.
