DEFORESTATION STORMS, France. Europe. St.Dizier and Chaumont region, Haut  Marne, Champagne  Ardenne. Hurricane force winds uprooted millions of  trees across Europe. Dry weather followed  by heavy rain made the roots vulnerable.  Winds of 100-200kmh swept through the land  causing havoc. Hundreds of millions of trees were knocked down. Hundreds of millions of tons of wood  swamped timberyards.
