Authorities report 2nd death in US from Matthew
CAPE CANAVERAL - Authorities are now saying two people have died in the U.S. because of Hurricane Matthew.
The Putnam County, Florida, Sheriff's Office reported Friday that a woman was killed and a man was injured near Crescent City when a tree fell on their camper during the storm.
A post on the sheriff's office Facebook page says the two adults were attempting to ride out the storm when high winds apparently caused the tree to fall. The man escaped with minor injuries, but the woman was killed.
Authorities didn't immediately name the victims.
Earlier Friday, Volusia County emergency management director Jim Judge reported the death of a woman after a tree fell on her house.
More than 300 people were killed in the Caribbean as a result of the hurricane, mostly in Haiti.
