MINNEAPOLIS Mar 3, 2007 (AP)— Fierce wind blew snow across roads and stranded hundreds of drivers on Midwestern highways Friday, as thousands shivered without power and airlines were forced to call off hundreds of flights.
At least 15 storm-related deaths have been reported since the snow began falling Wednesday.
The storm left more than a foot of snow in some areas Friday. Even as the flakes stopped falling by afternoon, gusts of 40 mph prompted blizzard warnings and prevented major highways from reopening.
Officials at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport canceled 500 flights, blaming bad weather elsewhere.
