First Isaac Related Death Reported

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- There's been at least one death in Louisiana that's attributed to now Tropical Storm Isaac.

Deputies in Vermilion Parish say a 36-year-old man died after falling 18 feet from a tree while helping friends move a vehicle before the storm. They say they don't know why the man climbed the tree.

Isaac was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm. It's still a massive, slow-moving system that could dump rain for days.
