Storm Aftermath Death
The Carbondale PD website reports the death of Samuel Casey,38, of Florida. One of hundreds of lumberjacks that arrived in town following the storm, he was crushed while removing a tree on North Beadle. His is the first death I am aware of linked to the storm's aftermath. Thanks to D. Gorton for pointing this out.
