Death Toll From Storms Rises To 14

FRANCONIA, Va. (AP) — The death toll from the storms that devastated the eastern U.S. has risen to 14.

Spokeswoman Corinne Geller of the Virginia State Police says the state medical examiner has concluded a traffic death Friday night in Montgomery County was storm related. The other deaths all resulted from falling trees.

Other deaths have been reported in Maryland, Washington, New Jersey and Ohio.

More than 3 million people remained without power Sunday, sweltering without air conditioning and trying to keep food from spoiling. Stoplights across the region were still out, leading some to wonder how bad the Monday morning commute could be.

Meanwhile, Coast Guard officials say they have suspended the search for a man who went missing early Saturday while boating during the storm off Maryland.
