In flood-stricken Haysi, in Dickenson County, a father and two of his sons died, evidently of electrocution.

They were identified as 46-years-old Jimmy Nowlin, 13-year-old Kirby Nowlin and 12-year-old Troy Nowlin. The trio had started to wade across the Bartlick Creek to a store, but as they entered the water, they apparently were electrocuted by a live 4,400 volt power line in the water.
