PICAYUNE, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say two people have died during Isaac, one in Mississippi and the other in Louisiana.
A tow truck driver was killed Thursday morning when a tree fell on his truck in Picayune, Miss., just across the state line from Louisiana. Authorities said Isaac was causing heavy rain and strong winds.
In Louisiana, a man died in Vermilon Parish.
Sheriff Mike Couvillon says the 36-year-old man had gone to help two friends move a vehicle from under a tree to prepare for Isaac on Tuesday, and fell to his death after climbing 18 feet up the tree.
Deputies don't know why Carlos Medellin-Guillen of Erath climbed the tree.
The accident occurred shortly before Isaac made landfall to the east on the Louisiana coast.
