Virginia Officials Blame Sandy For 2 Deaths

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia emergency officials are blaming two traffic-related deaths on superstorm Sandy.

The Virginia Department of Emergency Management said Tuesday that the medical examiner's office had confirmed that two traffic fatalities were caused by the storm.

The wreck happened early Tuesday morning in downtown Richmond.

The storm brought tropical-force winds and flooding to the eastern and central part of the state on Monday and dumped snow in southwest Virginia and along the higher elevations.

More than 177,000 statewide were without power.
