The mountains of West Virginia have been hit the hardest by super-storm Sandy. In some places, feet of snow have closed roads and caused damage.
Many parts of Nicholas County are snowed in. The main roads, Interstate 79 and Route 19, are still very treacherous and many of the side roads were so bad, Eyewitness News crews were asked not to even attempt to travel them. Several road crews and the national guard were out in Nicholas County, removing snow but the snow was continuing to fall heavily on Tuesday that the roads were getting covered back up.
So much snow had piled up on two homes in the county that the roofs caved in. No one was hurt.
Emergency responders say they've been incredibly busy but answering the calls has been very difficult because of downed trees and power lines.
There are emergency heating shelters set up throughout Nicholas County.
