Crews in Roanoke County rescued a hiker from the Appalachian Trail last night.
We are told it happened along Catawba Valley Drive at McAfee Knob.
Authorities say the snowfall made for a difficult rescue, but the hiker was found uninjured around 8:20 p.m.
Officials said the hiker wasn't prepared for snowfall on the mountains and called for help.
A plane attempting to land in stormy weather crashed on a small Taiwanese island late Wednesday, killing 47 people and wrecking houses and cars on the ground.
