Irma blamed for six deaths in Florida
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Authorities say a Florida man appears to have been electrocuted by a downed power line following Irma.
Winter Park police spokesman Garvin McComie says officers responded Monday morning following reports of a man lying in the roadway.
The officers determined that 51-year-old Brian Buwalda was dead at the scene. A medical examiner will determine an official cause of death, but McComie says it appears to be an accident.
Winter Park is in Orange County, just of Orlando.
The storm has been blamed for more than 40 deaths, including six in Florida.
