Towns and villages across Britain were flooded by Storm Dennis, as seen in aerial footage taken Monday, February 17, in and around the town of Hereford.
READ MORE: Britain issued severe flood warnings Monday, advising of life-threatening danger after Storm Dennis dumped weeks' worth of rain in some places. A woman was found dead after being swept away by the floodwaters, the storm's third confirmed victim.
To the east, Dennis' gale-force winds also left nine people injured in Germany as their vehicles crashed into broken trees littering roads and train tracks. Flooding and power outages were reported elsewhere in northern Europe.
By Monday evening, Britain's Environment Agency issued seven severe flood warnings in the central English counties of Herefordshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire. Another 200 lower-level flood warnings also were in place, meaning that flooding was expected.
Some 480 flood warnings and alerts were issued Monday across England — the highest number on record, the agency said.
