5 dead in Louisiana, Mississippi after Isaac
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - At least five deaths from Isaac have been reported in Louisiana and Mississippi.
The latest two victims, a man and a woman, were discovered late Thursday in a home in the hard-hit town of Braithwaite, south of New Orleans. Authorities said deputies went to search for the couple after someone reported they had apparently not escaped the flooding. Their names were not immediately released.
An unidentified man died in a restaurant blaze in Gretna that firefighters could not control because of Isaac's strong winds Wednesday. Another man died falling from a tree in Louisiana during the storm, and a tow truck driver in Mississippi was killed when a tree crushed the cab of his truck.
