Minnesota Digs Out as Snow Moves East
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A major snowstorm is walloping Wisconsin, Michigan and northern Ohio after dumping more than a foot of fresh snow in Minnesota.
Hundreds of flights have been canceled since the snow started yesterday. That included about 160 this morning at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where more than a foot of snow fell. An airport spokeswoman says the weather is clearing and no more cancellations are expected, though there still may be delays.
In the southern Minneapolis suburbs, Eden Prairie had 17 inches of snow and Bloomington 16 inches. The highest state total was 19 inches in Madison in far western Minnesota.
More than 10 inches fell in the Dakotas, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Ice brought down power lines in Michigan and Ohio, leaving tens of thousands of people without electricity. Hundreds of flights were canceled at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
