A Butts County man overnight became the area's first storm-related death.
That's according to Glen Goens, the county's EMA director.
He said the 50-year-old went walking to a neighbor's house around 9 Tuesday night and apparently slipped, fell and hurt himself.
The man dragged his way back to his porch.
But his family didn't notice he was missing until 5:30 Wednesday morning. Goens said.
Goens said the man apparently died of hypothermia. He said there's been no autopsy yet.
