West Virginia authorities have recovered the body of a 19-year-old woman who was swept away by flash flooding earlier in the week.
    
Officials say Page Geller’s body was found in the Ohio River on Saturday. Geller and 24-year-old Michael Grow were in a van on Sunday that rolled into a stream following heavy rains. Grow was pulled from the floodwaters and later died at a hospital. Ohio County Emergency Management Director Lou Vargo said authorities did not find Geller until early Saturday morning when heavy rains again caused flooding in the northern parts of the state.
    
West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has declared a state of emergency and has mobilized the National Guard in response to the most recent flooding. No other fatalities or major injuries have been reported.
