LONDON - A major storm with hurricane-force winds is lashing southern Britain.

Officials report flooding in some areas Monday and major travel delays for commuters. Some rail lines are cancelled, and Heathrow Airport reports cancelling some flights.

Weather forecasters say it is one of the worst storms to hit Britain in years.

A teenage boy is feared to have died after being swept to sea.

Roughly 7,000 homes in southwest England are without power.

Flood alerts have been issued in many parts of southern England.
