CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia officials are blaming superstorm Sandy for five deaths, including a state legislative candidate
 
The dead include a House of Delegates candidate and a second Barbour County man, killed in separate weather-related accidents. Officials didn't immediately have details of two of the deaths.
 
Barbour County Emergency Services Director Cindy Hart says both men died Tuesday.
 
George Rose tells The Associated Press that one of the men was his father, Republican House of Delegates candidate John Rose Sr. The 60-year-old was checking fences on his deer farm when a falling tree limb struck him.
 
Hart says another man died while shoveling snow at his home.
 
The storm also was blamed for the death of a 40-year-old woman whose car collided with a cement truck Monday in Tucker County.
