Two people were electrocuted by a downed power line in Florida's Orange County as Nicole crossed the state Thursday morning, the county sheriff's office said.
"Deputies responded to the intersection of Bayfront Parkway and Pershing Avenue in reference to a man down call around 9:30 a.m. ET,” the office said in a post on Facebook.
"When they arrived, deputies found a man who was unresponsive after he exited a vehicle and made contact with a downed live power line. That man was pronounced deceased on scene. A woman traveling with the man was also electrocuted and was transported to the hospital, where she died," the post reads.
"We are urging all of our residents and visitors to use extreme caution if they are outside in the wake of the storm today. Never touch a downed power line. If you are driving and see a downed power line, change directions immediately," the post reads, adding that residents should call 911 if they see a downed line.
