Michael’s death toll rises to 11, including 5 dead in Virginia

- At least 11 deaths have been blamed on Michael, the most powerful hurricane to hit the continental U.S.in over 50 years.

According to the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, there have been five Michael-related deaths in the state. The five deaths in Virginia came as the state dealt with 520,000 power outages, 1,200 closed roads and five suspected tornadoes, said the Virginia Dept. of Emergency Management in a tweet.

In Florida, officials reported four deaths related to the storm, including a man who was killed when a tree crashed through the roof of his home in Greensboro.

The Hanover County Fire-EMS Department identfied the firefighter killed as Fire Lt. Brad Clark.

Many across Hampton Roads were impacted by now post-tropical storm Michael, which was a tropical storm when it crossed over Hampton Roads and northeastern North Carolina on Thursday.

Ahead of the storm's arrival, Governor Ralph Northam has declared a state of emergency in anticipation of its potential impacts.

It is unclear if anyone else was hurt and the victim's name has not been released. The Highway Patrol called it a freak accident and says the man was killed on the spot.

Some fear the toll can only rise as rescue teams get around storm debris blocking roads and reach isolated areas.
