Ike caused "a few deaths," surges: Chertoff

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said there were unconfirmed reports of "a few deaths" from Hurricane Ike, which slammed the Texas coast on Saturday.

"We have already heard some initial reports of a few deaths," he said. "Obviously one death is more than we want to hear about."


He refused to say whether he expected the death toll to rise.

"I don't want to speculate," Chertoff said. "If someone stayed in an area predicted to be largely flooded, they put their lives at risk."
