Search Underway for Over 40 People After Flood in Virginia
Search efforts continue in Virginia for more than 40 people who are unaccounted for after a torrential downpour inundated a rural area. It rained more than 6 inches in a matter of hours in Buchanan County yesterday causing extensive damage to some homes, bridges and roads in the area. At least 44 people remain unaccounted for. Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin declared a state of emergency to help with recovery efforts. Over 100 homes were damaged and it will take time for ‘access to be restored’, many roads were blocked by landslides and approaches to bridges were washed out in the storm.
