Officials are reporting what may be the first West Virginia fatality from a storm packing high winds and heavy rain.
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said one person was killed in a collision between a concrete truck and another vehicle Monday in Tucker County, where the storm produced wind and rain.
He also said at least 2,000 power customers were in the dark as weather conditions spurred by Hurricane Sandy entered the state.
Tomblin declared a state of emergency as forecasters warned of high wind throughout the state and blizzard conditions in at least 14 counties. Officials in the panhandles also were reporting flooding around small streams.
Officials expect conditions to worsen overnight. The governor briefed reporters at the state's emergency operations center in the state Capitol basement.
