Storm Death Toll Revised To 31; Down By 2

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency has revised the state's death toll from last week's storms to 31.

That's two fewer than the agency had reported on Sunday. The number of deaths in Macon County was revised down to 13 and the number in Trousdale County was revised down to two.

Spokesman Jeremy Heidt says the error came because two people had been counted twice.

There is still one person missing in Trousdale County and some of the injured are in critical condition, so the count could change again.
