Frances Blamed for Seven Deaths

9-06-04 - What was Hurricane Frances is blamed for at least seven deaths in Florida.

They include a grandson and a former son-in-law of Florida State
University football coach Bobby Bowden. The pair died in a collision on a rain-slick highway.

On Monday, a school employee died in Ocala after falling from a
ladder while checking the roof of a middle school for damage.

A man in the Fort Myers area died Sunday while walking his dog
when he was struck by flying debris. A Gainsville woman was killed
in her living room when an oak tree crashed onto her mobile home.
Two other people died in traffic accidents.

Frances came ashore today in Florida's Panhandle, as people in
central and south Florida began cleaning up. Millions remain without power.

President Bush is expected to survey storm damage on Wednesday.
