CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Multiple fatalities have been reported in flooding that has devastated parts of the state, a state official said Friday morning.

Chris Stadelman, West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s communications director, said some areas were “probably looking at flooding that’s going to be the worst in 100 years.”


At least two fatalities related were reported after storms rolled into West Virginia early Thursday and continued throughout the day leaving thousands without power and several roads impassable.

The fatalities included at least one child and one adult. Wheeling police told newspaper The Intelligencer that an 8-year-old boy died after he was swept away by swift water. Brooke Hylbert, Kanawha Metro 911 agency coordinator, told the Charleston Gazette-Mail that a man drowned in Clendenin, but she didn’t have details.
