Storms Continue To Pound Large Parts Of The Country

Spring is spreading its share of nasty weather throughout much of the Midwest and Deep South, leaving thousands of people without power.

The upper Midwest is just emerging from a storm that dumped several inches of snow in parts of the Dakotas and forced temperatures down to as low as 22 degrees. Now, forecasters are saying another 6 to 12 inches of snow could fall as a new storm rages through Montana, North Dakota and northern Minnesota.

Things aren't any easier in the southern part of the country. Three people have died from the storm that spawned 12 tornadoes in six days. Missouri, Arkansas and Alabama saw the majority of the action, but Louisiana, Mississippi and Georgia also saw storms so strong that it peeled the roofs from homes in some parts of the Deep South.
