Deadly storms hit Mid-Atlantic after Midwest

Three deaths; thunderstorms follow twisters in massive weather system.

ANNANDALE, Va. - Severe storms that downed power lines and trees across a large swath of the country Wednesday were blamed for three deaths.

A woman died Wednesday afternoon when a tree fell on a vehicle in Annandale, a Washington, D.C., suburb, a fire department spokesman said.

Earlier Wednesday, authorities in West Virginia recovered the body of a 20-year-old man swept away while trying to drive his truck through high water. Gov. Joe Manchin declared a state of emergency in at least 15 West Virginia counties after flooding and mudslides closed numerous roads. Some places reported more than 3 inches of rain.
