In photos: Deadly storm Delta leaves thousands without power in Louisiana
Three deaths have been linked to former Hurricane Delta, as PowerOutage.us reported over 100,000 customers remained without power in Louisiana on Tuesday morning — four days after the storm made landfall in the state.
Details: Louisiana officials said Sunday a man, 86, died while refueling a generator in a shed that caught fire and a woman, 70, died in a fire "likely caused by a natural gas leak following damage." In the Florida Panhandle, Okaloosa County sheriff's office said a 19-year old Illinois tourist drowned Saturday "after being caught in a rip."
The big picture: Delta weakened to a post-tropical cyclone Saturday after making landfall as a Category 2 hurricane.
- The storm's remnants brought heavy rains to the Southeast over the past few days, triggering floods in several regions, with Louisiana bearing the brunt.
- At least one suspected tornado from the storm struck, in Covington, Georgia, on Saturday.
