Conn. Police Report Third Storm Death



    LYME, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut state police are reporting a
    third death in the state that happened during the weekend's rain
    and wind storm.

    Troopers say 75-year-old Richard Seckla drowned accidentally
    Sunday afternoon in a pond behind his home in Lyme, apparently
    while he was trying to move structures in the pond because of
    rising water.

    In Westport, police say 39-year-old Jennifer Thibault of Long
    Valley, N.J., died when a tree fell on her car Saturday night.
    Three passengers in the car were treated at a hospital; they
    haven't been identified.

    Greenwich police say a 61-year-old woman also died during the
    storm Saturday night, when a tree fell on her as she and her
    husband were walking in their neighborhood. Her husband has been
    released from a hospital. Their names haven't been released.
