The Daily Telegraph - - News -

The death toll from flood­ing in the US state of West Vir­ginia rose to 24, as Pres­i­dent Barack Obama de­clared a ma­jor dis­as­ter.

The White House re­leased fed­eral aid for the hard­est-hit ar­eas af­ter days of storms and heavy rain caused mas­sive flood­ing.

High waters have washed away cars, trapped hun­dreds and left thou­sands with­out power. Hun­dreds of homes have been se­verely dam­aged or de­stroyed.
