Plains States Dig Out After Storm

November 30, 2005|From Associated Press

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Crews scrambled to reach utility poles along roads choked by huge snow drifts Tuesday, slowly restoring electricity to thousands left in the dark by the Plains' first blizzard of the season.

Major roads and interstates were reopened a day after the storm walloped the region. Five deaths were blamed on slippery roads in Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas. A sixth person was killed by a tornado spun off by the big storm system in Arkansas.

Remnants of the system headed over the upper Great Lakes on Tuesday after the storm dumped snow as far south as the Texas Panhandle. As much as 20 inches fell at Kennebec, S.D.
