Authorities said that a 79-year-old woman who died of a heart attack in Bonn was apparently the only fatal victim of a rare and powerful earthquake that rousted people from their beds across northern Europe in the hours before dawn Monday. More than 46 people in Germany and the Netherlands were reported injured in the quake, which, among other damage, knocked a stone cross from the top of Cologne's landmark Gothic cathedral. Readings of the quake's magnitude varied from 5.4 at the U.S.

Rivers of lava poured down Mt. Etna on Sunday, engulfing small buildings and threatening a mountain lodge after a series of earthquakes awakened Europe's highest and most active volcano. Pine trees caught fire as the heat of the lava engulfed them, and the stench of sulfur filled the air as cracks opened up in the ground, witnesses said.

Under a bad toupee, accompanied by Letterman's trademark smirk and cheesy sitar riffs from the band, Fonte sat in the blue chair and gave his forecast of the signal events of 1991.
