Great Lakes Cyclone Aftermath

Dakotas SnowSever Weather NCAPTOPIX Midwest StormsFrom the Dakotas to the Southern States, it seems like everyone is dealing with the aftermath of the massive “Land-phoon” that ripped across half of the United States.  This storm produced tornadoes, torrential rains, flooding, winter storms and blizzards. 

Heavy snow and strong winds battered the Dakotas for a second time on Wednesday, with visibility reduced to nothing as blowing snow made roadways disappear.  If that wasn’t bad, enough they were also covered in ice, snow and slush. In North Carolina, winds from the storm blew through neighborhoods blowing out windows caving in chimney and blowing over trees.

This rare, fast-moving storm destroyed homes in the Midwest on Tuesday. Eight tornadoes touched down in Indiana, and six in Ohio, including one with gusts of at least 111 mph that ripped through a town. Tornadoes also whirled through Racine County, Wis., where a section of roof was torn off a tractor factory. In Peotone, Ill., three people were injured when a home’s roof was blown off.
This storm had a pressure reading on Tuesday that was the lowest ever recorded of a non-tropical storm in the mainland U.S.
