Tropical storm Zeta kills at least two as it continues to destroy Southern US

TROPICAL storm Zeta kills at least two as it continues to destroy Southern US, leaving a trail of downed trees and damaged buildings in its wake.

The near Category 2 hurricane turned tropical storm is currently racing across the Southeast after slamming into Louisiana with 110-mile-per-hour winds (175 km per hour) and knocking out power to 2.4 million people on Thursday, October 29.

The two tragic deaths occurred after one man in New Orleans died after touching a live power line, while a Mississippi man drowned after his car became flooded near the coast.

This marks the fifth tropical storm to strike Louisiana this year and residents have been urged to stay indoors by New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell.

Governor John Bel Edwards advised the state’s residents: “Now is not the time to go sightseeing.”

A video on Twitter shows the devastation left by Tropical storm Zeta:

Zeta twisted up in the Caribbean Sea and left homes, and businesses, from Louisiana to North Carolina without power as the destruction continues.
