LONDON (AP) — The latest winter storm to lash Britain and Ireland has killed two motorists and left tens of thousands of people without electricity. Hundreds of trains were canceled Monday amid heavy rain and wind gusts topping 100 miles (160 kilometers) an hour. The U.K.’s Met Office weather service issued an unusual wind warning for the whole country before Storm Isha, which reached its peak overnight. Isha is the ninth named storm since September. Planes bound for several airports were diverted, including flights bound for Dublin that ended up in France.
