Earthquakes, storms, doom.

Obviously, the doomiest thing going is the horrible earthquake in Chile, but the storms that hit Europe are pretty unbelievable too.

"More than 40 people have been killed in France after it was battered by heavy rain and hurricane-force winds in the country's worst storm for more than a decade.
Many victims drowned in floods, while others died when they were hit by falling trees and branches or when parts of buildings broke off.

At least a dozen people were missing and around 60 others were injured in the storm, named Xynthia.

Strong gusts reached speeds of about 130mph on the summits of the Pyrenees and almost 100mph along the Atlantic Coast.

More than one million residents suffered power cuts. Worst affected was central France and Brittany, where rivers overflowed."
