CARRABELLE, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Rick Scott says a homeless man died in north Florida when a tree fell on him as winds from Hermine whipped across Florida.

Speaking at a news conference Friday, the governor said he was informed of the fatality Friday morning by Marion County Sheriff Emery Gainey.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports the man was apparently sleeping in a tent behind Diamond Oil near Ocala when the tree fell on him.
