The NOPD says a man is dead after being electrocuted last night by a low-hanging power line caused by Hurricane Zeta.

Officials say the fatal accident happened near Dublin and Stroelitz streets when a transformer blew, and the line fell close to the ground.

Witnesses say the victim was walking near the line and was electrocuted when he tried to move it out of his way.

Police ask residents to avoid traveling the streets as much as possible and avoid any low-hanging wires they come across.
