Burning house carried off by West Virginia flood (VIDEO)
Flooding in West Virginia has killed 14 people and cut power to over 500,000. A state of emergency has been declared in 44 counties. At one point, the raging floodwaters carried away a house – while it was on fire.

A video recorded by local resident Amanda Carper shows the burning building floating down the Howard Creek in White Sulphur Springs, in Greenbrier County.

White Sulphur Springs, a town of some 2,500 people, is just up the creek from Greenbrier resort, which has also been swamped by the flooding.
