As John McClane and fellow hacker Matt Farrell were driving to the Eastern Power Hub, they cross the border into West Virginia, indicated by a sign that says:

Welcome to / WEST VIRGINIA / Open for Business

Mai Linh and her two henchmen go to the hub to shutdown the power of the East Coast. However the trio get defeated by McClane and Farrell later on, but the hub is also destroyed, which causes most of the East Coast, including West Virginia, to lose power.
