Stop playing “Here Comes the Sun”—spring is not here yet. A severe snowstorm rocked the Midwest on Thursday, leaving several inches of snow in the Plains states and thousands without power. At least three deaths were blamed on the storm. Tornadoes and severe thunderstorms were also reported in the Southeast, with one person dying in Mississippi. In Missouri and Illinois, thousands were left without power, with at least eight homes destroyed in the St. Louis neighborhood the Hill. Severe flooding was reported in Michigan. In South Dakota, the snow and ice shut down Interstate 90 and several other major roads, while at least three to five inches of snow was expected in North Dakota.
