Two men who had survived Hurricane Isaias when it made landfall in North Carolina on Tuesday died the next day after they were struck by lightning while cleaning storm debris, officials said. It happened around 11:49 a.m. in Wilmington, near Bradley Creek, according to the Wilmington Police Department. “The two male victims were struck while trying to cut down trees,” police tweeted.
From The New York Times:
More than two and a half million customers lost power and at least one person was killed after Tropical Storm Isaias tore through New York, New Jersey and Connecticut on Tuesday, battering the region with heavy rain, tornadoes and nearly hurricane-force winds.
In New York City and Westchester County, around 267,000 Con Edison customers had lost power by nightfall as a result of Isaias — second only to Hurricane Sandy in 2012 in terms of storm-related outages, said Allan Drury, a spokesman for the utility. New Jersey was hit even harder. More than 1.2 million utility customers in the state were without service as of 10 p.m., as were more than 600,000 in Connecticut. Across New York State, more than 800,000 had no service.
