Three of those victims, Jan Louis Lebron Diaz, Kiara Lebron Diaz, and Desiree Diaz Molina, died from carbon monoxide poisoning Tuesday when fumes from a portable generator overcame them in their house, Medical Examiner Joshua Stephany reported.

One woman, Heidi Zehner-Daly, died of a blunt-force trauma in an unwitnessed, one-vehicle automobile accident attributed to the storm.
