European weather deaths pass 100 | World news |

European weather deaths pass 100 |
World news |
: "More than 100 people have been killed in the cold snap across Europe, with temperatures plummeting and snowfall causing chaos from Moscow to Milan."

This is something that I don't understand. Europe is supposed to be so great. I spent a few years living there in the late '80's and I lived through a more severe cold snap, it was a week of -40° temperatures and by the time it was over more then 1000 people had died.

Here in the US under similar conditions only a handful of people die and most of them are from car crashes.

If Europe is so advanced and compassionate, how is it so many homeless are dying? Something is wrong over there, though I have no idea what.
