Florida Officials are Blaming Tropical Storm Fay for Seven Deaths

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida officials are blaming Tropical Storm Fay for seven deaths.

Four were in traffic accidents on slick roads, two were from drowning and one was carbon monoxide poisoning.

Two died in Duval County accidents, a 16-year-old girl Wednesday
and a 44-year-old man Thursday.

A 43-year-old man died Wednesday in Indian River County when his car hit a pole.

Two women drowned in heavy surf Thursday, a 21-year-old in Duval
and a 35-year-old in Volusia County.

Officials are also counting two deaths Saturday, before the storm's center first hit the state. One was a 42-year old woman killed in a Palm Beach County wreck. The other was a 54-year-old man who died from carbon monoxide while testing generators.
