Large Snowstorm Heads Northeast; Two Dead in Wake
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Weather forecasters are warning of slick roads and reduced visibility as gusty winds are expected to kick up snow that fell overnight in southern Wisconsin.
The same is expected in northeast Iowa, and in Chicago.
The major snow storm that shuttered airports in Missouri and buried parts of Kansas has crawled northeast. It’s left at least two dead.
At a Travel Centers of America truck stop in the central Illinois city of Effingham, all of the 137 parking spaces were filled by truckers unwilling to drive through the storm overnight.
The storm system swirled to the north and east late yesterday, its snow, sleet and freezing rain prompting winter storm across the region — and leaving some impressive snow accumulations.
