WAVELAND, Miss. - A second person has died in Mississippi as a result of Hurricane Isaac.
Century Hairston Funeral Home says Lillie M. Randle, a 62-year-old resident of Lexington, Miss., was killed just after 9 a.m. Thursday when a tree fell on her car. The funeral home says Randle was the only person in her vehicle when the tree fell on it.
Gov. Phil Bryant attributed the death to the storm in a Jackson news conference Friday.
Tow truck driver Gregory Alan Parker of Picayune, was also killed early Thursday when Isaac's high winds and heavy rains knocked a tree onto his vehicle in his hometown, one county up from the coast and just across the state line from Louisiana.
