Slow-moving snowstorm pummels Midwest, heads east
CHICAGO (AP) — A massive, slow-moving storm paralyzed parts of the nation’s midsection with heavy, wet snow Tuesday before churning eastward.
Some parts of the Midwest got a foot or more of snow, which strained power lines, closed schools, clogged roadways and delayed hundreds of flights.
Forecasters expect it to dump 5-8 inches of snow in southeast Michigan on Wednesday afternoon and up to a foot in northern New England by later in the evening.
The storm was so big that it made travel perilous Tuesday from the Oklahoma Panhandle to the Great Lakes.
At least three deaths were blamed on the blizzard.
