Floods Ravage Virginia

Flooding rivers chased thousands of people from their homes Wednesday as rain soaked Virginia for a sixth day.

One death has been blamed on the flooding and divers and boaters searched the state’s northern tip until evening for a 3-year-old girl swept into a stream a day earlier. The search was to resume today.

It was the second flood in a week for residents of southwestern Virginia.
