President Barack Obama has declared a major federal disaster for five southwestern Minnesota counties hit by an April ice storm.
Schoolchildren in Minnesota and Wisconsin got a rare May snow day Thursday as a storm dropped up to 16 inches of sticky snow across a beleaguered region that was just starting to enjoy spring.
Crews are working to repair electrical lines brought down by the heavy, wet snow that fell across parts of northern Iowa, southeastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
The calendar has flipped to May, but winter has made a return appearance to southeastern Minnesota where residents are digging out of an unseasonable dump of wet heavy snow.
Heavy snow, sleet and gusty winds are testing the patience of morning commuters in the Twin Cities as residents to the south are dealing with the after-effects of an ice storm that knocked out power to thousands.
This fresh dose of winter has caused Metro Transit’s light rail line to halt Thursday morning, as ice on the power lines forced them to shut down the entire line, from Mall of America to Target Field.
More than two dozen juveniles from a residential treatment center that lost power in an ice storm have been moved to a National Guard armory in southwestern Minnesota.
A winter storm that is causing huge problems across the Midwest moved into Minnesota Thursday night.
Duluth, Itasca, International Falls and Grand Rapids are among northeastern Minnesota school districts canceling classes because of poor road conditions.
The Minnesota State Patrol is urging motorists as they wake up Monday to leave early, drive slow and give themselves extra driving time for the morning commute.
For the last week or so, the Twin Cities has seen a series of small-dose snowfalls. This weekend might bring a change to that pattern.
The Minnesota State Patrol says the southbound lanes of Interstate 35 between Albert Lea and the Iowa border have reopened.
The first widespread snowstorm of the season began a slow crawl across the Midwest on Thursday, creating treacherous driving conditions that, in Iowa, led to a 25-vehicle pileup that killed one person.
MnDOT officials say they are ready for the freezing rain and two to four inches of snow expected to fall between Friday night and late Saturday in the metro area. They want drivers to be prepared for the conditions by practicing safe winter driving habits.
There weren’t many snowplows on Twin Cities area roads on the way up to Duluth Tuesday afternoon, but there were plenty of Minnesotans pulling snowmobiles.
