RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Bob McDonnell says Virginia's death toll from last weekend's storms has climbed to 13 with a fatality in Fairfax County.
Bob Spieldenner of the Department of Emergency Management said Thursday that the death was attributed to heat and the storm, but further details were not immediately available.
McDonnell said the number of Virginia homes and businesses without power has declined to 95,475. Dominion Virginia Power reported 16,782 customers still without service - nearly a third of them in northern Virginia. Also without power were 76,733 Appalachian Power customers and 1,960 electric cooperative customers.
One primary road and 55 secondary roads remain closed.
