National Weather Service Confirms Tornadoes, Recovery Underway

The National Weather Service says more than 20 inches of snow fell in the Green Bay area.

Around the area, 22 inches of snow was reported in victor as of 3 p.m. Sunday, with 15.6 inches reported in Huron, 14.1 inches in Burke, along with 16.5 inches in Kennebec, according to the NWS.

Tornado warnings were issued for Summit, Stark and Portage counties until 7:15 p.m. Sunday.

It also caused its share of slide-off, but there probably would have been even more if the storm had hit during the work week.

KSFY TV Meteorologist Shawn Cable says we're not done.

The NWS office in Negaunee Township as of this morning only had one reading reported from the Dickinson-Iron county area - 9 inches of snow just north of Iron Mountain.

'60 Minutes' Blasts Allegiant Air's Safety Record
The CBS segment also hit out at the FAA's lack of enforcement actions against Allegiant's systemic safety issues. Neither DeNardi and Syth have ever flown the airline, though both said they would have no reservations doing so.

Omaha-Council Bluffs area, zero; Lincoln, zero; Fremont, less than 1 inch; Columbus, less than 1 inch; Albion, 2-3; Norfolk, 3-4; Wayne, 3-4; Neligh, 3-4; Niobrara, 4-6.

Mitchell also saw record-breaking lowest high temperature for April on Saturday of 29 degrees, 2 degrees cooler than the lowest high of 31 recorded in 1983, according to the National Weather Service. Snow totals were upwards of a foot through south central South Dakota.

About 200 Sunday flights have been canceled at Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport, where almost 13 inches (33 centimeters) of snow has fallen and where blizzard conditions on Saturday forced the cancellation of almost 470 flights.

St. Cloud averages 45.7 inches of snow in the winter. The greatest amounts could impact northwest Iowa and southwest Minnesota.

In lower MI, freezing rain that began falling overnight had left roads treacherous and cut power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses by midday Sunday. Let's hope it doesn't shut down the state like Friday's system did. At least three deaths have been attributed to the weather in Wisconsin, Nebraska and Louisiana.
