TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — The city of Tuscaloosa is blaming an additional death on the tornadoes that struck April 27.

The mayor’s office says the death of 81-year-old Calvin Hannah is now being linked to the storm. The retired newspaper photographer died on June 5, but relatives told officials his death was related to the tornado.

The city’s official death toll now stands at 51. The mayor’s office says 42 of those people suffered injuries related to the storm.

The city says the elderly are particularly susceptible to health problems related to the trauma of coping with the aftermath of the twister.

Hannah took pictures for The Tuscaloosa News for about 45 years before he retired in 1994. He suffered from Parkinson’s disease.
