The National Weather Service has confirmed to the Summit County Emergency Management Agency that a tornado touched down in Coventry Township overnight.

However, a snow plow knocked down a power pole on USA 2 near Hydraulic Falls Road in Iron Mountain about 9:45 a.m. Sunday, causing one electrical wire to fall to the ground and others to hang low over the road, Iron Mountain police and firefighters said.

Tornado warnings were issued for Summit, Stark and Portage counties until 7:15 p.m. Sunday.

The NWS office in Negaunee Township as of this morning only had one reading reported from the Dickinson-Iron county area - 9 inches of snow just north of Iron Mountain.

"It'll start out with rain or freezing rain, and then transition over to snow late Tuesday night and into Wednesday", Hanko said. Snow totals were upwards of a foot through south central South Dakota.

In the month of April, 14.8 inches of snow has fallen in St. Cloud.

In Mitchell, snow plow crews made progress by clearing streets and roadways. The greatest amounts could impact northwest Iowa and southwest Minnesota.

The storm system has been blamed on the deaths of three people.

About 750 flights were canceled over the weekend at the Minneapolis-St. No travel was advised throughout the area through Saturday night and into Sunday morning. Airport officials say the snow was coming down too fast to keep the runways clear or the planes deiced.

Between 12:01 a.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Sunday, the Minnesota State Patrol reported 405 crashes, 51 of those involving injuries.
