  • National Weather Service confirms EF1 tornado touched down near Wendell

A deadly storm system churning through the central US has blanketed parts of the Upper Midwest in heavy snow and ice and battered areas farther south with powerful winds and even tornadoes.

There have been three deaths blamed on the storm system, which stretched from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes. On Saturday, the storm resulted in the cancellation of not quite 470 flights at the airport.

The weather service said the 14.9 inches (37.8 centimeters) at Minneapolis airport from Friday through Sunday set a record for the largest April snowstorm ever there. On Saturday, the storm caused the cancellation of almost 470 flights at the airport. The heavy snow caused a portion of the hotel roof to collapse above a pool but no body had been in the pool area during that moment, also no body had been hurt. No one was in the pool at the time.
