West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin said during a press conference on Friday that 14 people have been confirmed dead after severe flooding in several counties.
“The damage is widespread and devastating,” Tomblin said. “Our focus remains on search and rescue.”
Six counties have extensive structural damage and more than 100 homes have been heavily damaged or destroyed, according to Tomblin.
Tomblin said Greenbrier, Nicholas, Cabell and Webster are the counties most impacted.
