Superstorm Sandy also wreaked havoc in the form of snow. Some parts of West Virginia got buried under more than 2 feet of it.

FOX News Radio’s Dave Anthony reports:

Audio clip:

Sandy hit West Virginia as a blizzard. Dumping two feet of snow or more:

Volunteer: “We have a lot of broken branches and tree issues.”

He is among the volunteers bringing aid from the Kentucky Baptist Convention:

Volunteer: “If they need help and we can provide it, we’ll give it to them.”

In some mountainous areas of the state, there’s fear people are still cut off. So blackhawk helicopters are being used to search for anyone trapped. Parts of Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and Tennessee also got buried. In the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, rangers are trying to find a hiker who called 9-1-1 from his cell phone stranded amid snow drifts four to five feet high.
