Monster Storm Blankets Midwest, Creates Travel Chaos

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(MINNEAPOLIS) -- A wallop of a snowstorm tore through the Midwest with up to two feet of snow and winds up to 50 miles per hour. The storm has affected 1500 miles from the Plains to the Great Lakes and the Midwest all the way to the Gulf.

It created travel chaos. Three airports were forced to close and roads were forced to shut down in five states. More than 17 inches of snow was measured at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, making this the area’s fifth biggest storm on record and the greatest snow total since 1991. Nasty conditions were to blame for at least 76 accidents. More than 300 cars slid off the road. The 4.2-million-square-foot Mall of America closed early on Saturday.

In Wisconsin, near-whiteout conditions prompted authorities to put out a no-travel advisory.

The Metrodome suffered structural damage Sunday morning as a result of the storm, hours before the Minnesota Vikings were originally scheduled to host the New York Giants. Officials on Saturday postponed the game until Monday. The Giants were stranded in Kansas City overnight Saturday when their charter plane couldn’t land in the snowy Twin Cities.

Roy Terwilliger of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission tells ABC News Minneapolis-St. Paul affiliate KSTP that the facility has encountered similar problems only three times before, the last time in 1983.
