Two-year-old Canadian girl among 8 dead in St. Vincent storm

KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent - Police in the east Caribbean island of St. Vincent say a two-year-old girl from Montreal was among the eight people who died in a Christmas Eve storm that led to widespread flooding and landslides.

She was identified in a police statement Monday as Shalarni Headley.

The girl was in St. Vincent on vacation with her mother and two other siblings.

Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves estimated that the recovery effort will cost "hundreds of millions of dollars."
