An ambulance is stuck in over a foot of snow off of Highway 33 West, near Belington, W.Va. on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012, in Belington, W.Va. Superstorm Sandy buried parts of West Virginia under more than a foot of snow on Tuesday, cutting power to at least 264,000 customers and closing dozens of roads. At least one death was reported. The storm not only hit higher elevations hard as predicted, communities in lower elevations got much more than the dusting of snow forecasters had first thought from a dangerous system that also brought significant rainfall, high wind gusts and small-stream flooding.

Hurricane Sandy killed at least 45 people in the United States after it pounded the U.S. East Coast with a record storm surge, high winds and heavy rains.

In West Virginia and neighboring Appalachian states, Hurricane Sandy causes wet snow, high winds and blizzard conditions.

One interstate was closed as trucks and cars bogged down and many people were out of power.
