Flooded communities in Britain faced a fresh battering from storms and high winds on Wednesday as emergency efforts in stricken areas picked up following criticism of a sluggish response.Fourteen severe flood warnings -- indicating a danger to life -- were in place in Berkshire and Surrey to the west of London, while two remain in Somerset in southwest England.More than 1,000 homes west of London along the River Thames have been flooded in the past week.Around 1,700 homes in Datchet, an affluent village a short distance upstream, had to contend with losing electricity late Tuesday.More troops have also been drafted into Somerset -- the rural county in southwest England that was the first to flood last month.
