Best Answer

Most drowned, as many homes were washed away or completely flooded.

Some were trapped in attics with no way out when they fled the rising waters, but most of these people were rescued. There were a number of deaths from collapsing structures, and several victims died of heart attacks. Some other invalids, hospital patients, and injured victims died due to lack of proper medical care.
