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.

Winter Park is in Orange County, near Orlando. The storm has been blamed for more than 40 deaths, including six in Florida. A Florida woman was killed when her SUV crashed into a guardrail as Irma approached the state. A Florida Highway Patrol report says 50-year-old Heidi Zehner was driving on state Route 417 near Orlando on Sunday evening when she lost control and crashed. The crash occurred just a couple hours after Hurricane Irma made landfall 200 miles (320 kilometers) to the south in Marco Island. 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 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.
