Isidore Blamed For A Second Death

Tropical storm Isidore is being blamed for a second death. Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove says 40 year old Christopher Holmes drowned because of flooding from the storm.

Biloxi police found Holmes inside a white mini-van underwater near the Palace Casino Sunday. He was reported missing Thursday when the storm hit.

Holmes' death is the second on the coast linked to the storm. You'll remember a Henderson Point man died of a heart attack after flood water prevented paramedics from reaching him.
