3 Dead in Georgia in Irma’s Wake

Three people died due to Tropical Storm Irma passing through Georgia on Monday, Sept. 11.

A woman was killed while in a car on a private driveway in Forsyth County when a tree fell crushing the car.

“The Forsyth County Fire Department and Sheriff’s Office worked diligently to rescue the female passenger who sadly died from her injuries,” the Sheriff’s Office stated in a Facebook post.

Her name hasn’t been released.

In the Atlanta suburb of Sandy Springs, a tree fell on a house and killed the man inside.

“We responded to a call of a tree on a house on Hardeman Road. Fire and police went into the home and located the victim in a back room,” Sandy Springs Police Sgt. Sam Worsham said via email.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office has not yet released the man’s name.

A Worth County man climbed up a ladder onto the roof of a shed during the storm and was found dead on Monday, according to the Worth County Sheriff’s Office.

“He was found between two beams and debris on the roof,” the office told The Epoch Times over Facebook, noting the winds were at 44 mph at the time with gusts at almost 70 mph.

The man’s name hasn’t been released.

Meanwhile, 840,000 customers were without power across the state as of Tuesday morning, the provider Georgia Power reported.

“[There are m]ore than 9,000 individual cases of damage or trouble (including broken poles and lines) the company is working to repair,” Georgia Power stated on Facebook. “Damage and outages are widespread and across the state with the hurricane impacting service to customers around Savannah, Columbus, Metro Atlanta, and beyond.”

Repairs may take days, even weeks. The company provides an online map of outages.

Irma has since weakened to a tropical depression with winds around 10 mph, moving northwest across Alabama.
