Eight year old killed after he slipped into a creek and was swept away.

Eight-year-old Emanual Williams died Thursday at a West Virginia hospital after he slipped into a creek and was swept away by raging waters, The Intelligencer reported. Williams is the only fatality to be identified by authorities so far.

An unknown number of people remain unaccounted for in Greenbrier County and about 32,000 remained without power throughout West Virginia Saturday. 

Saturday a news release from Tomblin’s office announced that a federal disaster declaration was approved for assistance in Kanawha, Greenbrier and Nicholas counties. The declaration provides people in those counties with individual assistance for emergency medical support, housing and a number of other immediate needs. 

FEMA has already started assessing damage, according to the Associated Press. The state may still submit additional aid applications to the agency.

With the help of 200 National Guardsmen, local crews in eight counties continue to perform swift water rescues, search and rescue efforts and health and welfare checks, AP also reports.

The governor said he planned to fly around the hardest-hit areas, but was unable to because all the state aircraft are being used for rescues.

Cook Up a Storm

Ushma Patel

When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy, And the dimpling stream runs laughing by; When the air does laugh with our merry wit, And the green hill laughs with the noise of it.
