An 11-year-old girl was killed when a tree fell onto her home as brutal Hurricane Michael tore through Georgia, officials said Thursday.

The tree collapsed at around 3 p.m. Wednesday, but the storm was so bad emergency crews couldn’t make it to the home until after nightfall, Seminole County EMA Director Travis Brooks told local station WMAZ.

The child’s name hasn’t been released.

This is the second storm-related death reported so far. Authorities said a man died Wednesday when a tree crashed trough the roof of his Gadsden County Fla., home.

After making landfall and wreaking havoc on the Florida panhandle, Michael weakened to a Tropical Depression and headed over Georgia and towards the Carolinas.
