2 more deaths in W.Va. blamed on storm

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Barbour County authorities say two people have died in separate weather-related accidents, bringing to at least three the number of people killed in West Virginia 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 working on trees at his home in the Philippi area but didn't immediately have other details on his death.

Hart says another man died while shoveling snow Tuesday at his home in the Belington area.

Neither names were released Wednesday 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 Tucker County.
