Deadly deluge batters United Kingdom

One man has died and tens of thousands are without power after months of rain caused River Thames to burst its banks.

    Flood-weary residents in the UK were hunkering down as forecasters predicted another band of torrential rain would pass through the area in the next few days, bringing a month's worth of precipitation.

    Weeks of stormy weather have killed one man, flooded thousands of homes and left tens of thousands of people without power in Britain.
