Cleaning up T.S. Lee's mess can be dangerous

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Because the weather in Harrison County calmed down just a bit Sunday morning, people ventured outside and started to clean up the mess created by Tropical Storm Lee's winds and rain.  The problem is it's still not a good time to be outside.

A 40-year-old man learned that the hard way on Yankie Town Road.  The picture attached to this story is the man laying on the ground after he fell off his ladder.  Witnesses tell WLOX News the man was cutting down tree limbs that snapped during Saturday's deluge.  His ladder apparently gave way, and he crashed to the ground.

The Saucier Volunteer Fire Department rushed to Yankie Town Road.  So did an ambulance.  The man's immediate condition was not known.
