    Winds blamed for Deer Park death - By ARMANDO VILLAFRANCA, Houston Chronicle
    High winds — gusting to more than 40 mph — were blamed for the death Tuesday of a man who fell off a scaffold while constructing a tank in Deer Park and for power failures that affected at least 30,000 customers.

    The man and another worker were on the inside of a storage tank in the 2600 block of Tidal Road when a part of the tank wall collapsed about 2:30 p.m., said Sgt. Dana Wolfe, Harris County sheriff's spokeswoman.
