Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell is urging the state's residents to join their West Virginia neighbors in a moment of silence in memory of the victims of last week's deadly mine explosion.
Twenty-nine miners died in the explosion at Massey Energy's
Upper Big Branch mine in Montcoal, W.Va.
West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin has called for a moment of silence at 3:30 p.m. Monday, which marks one week since the disaster.
McDonnell says he's asking Virginians to join the observance and
to continue to look for ways to help West Virginians as they go
through a tragic time.
