CLENDENIN, W.Va. (AP) — With the missing accounted for in all but one county, West Virginia has begun turning its attention to recovery after disastrous floods killed at least 24 people and rendered many more homeless.

By Estelle Shirbon LONDON (Reuters) - Scotland will do whatever it takes to remain in the European Union, including potentially blocking legislation on a British exit from the bloc, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Sunday. Scotland, a nation of five million people, voted to stay in the EU by 62 to 38 percent in Thursday's referendum, putting it at odds with the United Kingdom as a whole, which voted by 52 to 48 percent in favour of an exit from the bloc, or Brexit. Sturgeon has said a new Scottish referendum on independence from the rest of the UK was "highly likely" if that were the best option to keep Scotland in the European bloc.
