28,000 French homes without power after Storm Miguel

Paris, Some 28,000 homes were without power on Saturday morning after Storm Miguel hit France's west coast, electricity network firm Enedis said, according to dpa.

On Friday, the storm cost the lives of three lifeboat crew members whose boat capsized as they attempted to go to the aid of a fishing boat in distress off the coastal town of Les Sables d'Olonne.

The four other crew members were rescued in high seas and heavy winds. Authorities called off the search for the fisherman on Friday evening.

In Paris, a man was critically injured when a streetlight fell on him due to high winds, the city's fire service said.
