Every time there is the threat of a tornado, hundreds of storm chasers take their cameras and drive towards the danger. On Friday, three of the most respected chasers died during a tornado outbreak in Oklahoma. Meteorologist Tim Samaras, his son Paul and their friend Carl Young were killed when their car got caught up in the twister.
Officially, the weekend snowfall total was just more than 10 inches, according to instruments at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
