VILNIUS - Four people have died in the severe storms and floods that swept through Lithuania over the weekend.

The storms, which struck on Saturday night, were centered around Kaunas, the second largest city in the region. They left more than 8,000 people without electricity.

Two of those killed in the storm were camping when trees and branches fell down crushing them in their tents, where they were sheltering from the wild storm.
