Lebanese Storm Kills Two as Government Closes Schools

Jan. 7 (Bloomberg) -- A storm sweeping across Lebanon for the second day killed two people, including a six-month-old baby boy washed away by floods, blocked roads and led the government to order school closures for 48 hours starting tomorrow, the official National News Agency said.

The stormy weather is expected to continue for the next couple of days, with winds reaching 80 kilometers an hour (50 miles per hour) and snow falling at 300 meter (1,000 feet) elevations.
