CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Authorities in northern West Virginia say two more people have died in separate weather-related accidents, bringing to at least three the number of people in the state killed due to superstorm Sandy.
Barbour County Emergency Services Director Cindy Hart says both men were in their 60s and died at their homes Tuesday.
She says one man was clearing tree debris at his home but didn’t immediately have other details on his death. Hart says another man died while shoveling snow Tuesday at his home.
Neither of the men’s names were released Wednesday morning pending notification of relatives.
The storm also was blamed for the death of a 40-year-old woman whose car collided with a cement truck Monday in neighboring Tucker County.
