June derecho October Superstorm Sandy 
 
(CBS NEWS) CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Storms have battered West Virginia to the tune of more than $370 million this year.
 
That figure is based on regulatory filings and government estimates, according to the Charleston Daily Mail.
 
Most of the costs — approximately $340 million — are the result of a fierce and destructive wind storm called a derecho, which KO'd power across the state for several days in late June.
 
Then in late October Superstorm Sandy left up to 2 feet of snow across the eastern portion of the state. Sandy's costs already top $30 million, based on preliminary figures.
 
Appalachian Power has said its costs were $62 million, while FirstEnergy puts its costs at $110 million.
 
Customers ultimately will be asked to pick up some of those costs.
