Tropical Storm Irma claims 3rd life in Georgia

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Tropical Storm Irma has claimed a third life in Georgia.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office says on its website that a woman died from injuries she suffered when a tree fell on a vehicle in a private driveway.

The sheriff’s office says deputies and firefighters tried to rescue the woman, but she died from her injuries.

The sheriff’s office said it was withholding the woman’s name until her family and friends had been notified.

The storm is also being blamed for the death of a man in his 50s who died when a tree fell on his house just north of Atlanta and for the death of a 62-year-old man in rural southwest Georgia who had a heart attack after he climbed onto a shed Monday in a county where sustained winds exceeded 40 mph.
