Dos fallecimientos en el área de Baton Rouge han sido atribuidos ahora al huracán Ida, indicó el Departamento de Salud de Luisiana el lunes.

Con eso, la cifra de decesos a causa de la tormenta aumentó a 28. Ida tocó tierra en Luisiana el 29 de agosto como un huracán categoría 4.

El Departamento de Salud informó vía Twitter que la oficina forense del municipio East Baton Rouge reportó las muertes de un hombre de 69 años y de una mujer de 85, ambas por calor excesivo durante un apagón prolongado.

El Departamento agregó que 12 de los 28 fallecimientos vinculados a Ida en Luisiana fueron a causa del calor.

En respuesta a una consulta por correo electrónico, la oficina forense señaló que el hombre falleció el 6 de septiembre.

La investigadora forense Shane Evans dijo que la agencia continúa revisando los registros y tratando de comunicarse con los familiares de la mujer de 85 años, por lo que no puede dar más detalles.
