An 11-year-old dies in South Georgia from the impact of Hurricane Michael.

Hurricane Michael has claimed one life in Georgia.

An 11-year-old girl, Sarah Radney, from Seminole County, was killed on Wednesday when a carport was torn away from a nearby house sending it crashing into a mobile home she was in, according to Seminole County EMA Director Travis Brooks.

In total, Hurricane Michael has claimed six lives between Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina thus far.

Death tolls are expected to rise in the areas heavily impacted by Hurricane Michael as rescue crews have already started searching for victims of the storm.

Michael was the third-most powerful hurricane ever to make landfall in the U.S. mainland.
