Minnesota paralyzed by deadly snowstorm

Gov.  Dayton declared a State of emergency after a deadly blizzard dumped more than 18 inches of snow on some parts of Minnesota, leaving most roads iced over or impassable.

The order mobilized National Guard to help with recovery and sheltering of stranded motorists throughout the state.

More than 400 crashes and 1,300 spinouts or vehicles skidding off the road were reported between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, according to a State Patrol spokesperson.

A deadly collision in Wabasha County claimed at least one life.

The  conditions were the worst in living memory, according to the state’s veteran troopers.

Authorities closed schools in Minnesota’s three largest districts—Anoka-Hennepin, Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Tornadoes reported across six states

Meanwhile, the fierce storm system spawned two dozen tornadoes across six states—Illinois, Mississippi, Ohio, Georgia, Maryland and  North Carolina—Thursday through Friday.
