The Nation : Storm Threatens Dakotas

A spring snowstorm plunged temperatures into the teens, brought drifting snow up to six feet deep and created blizzard conditions in Wyoming and Montana as the Dakotas braced for the oncoming storm. The storm brought a foot of new snow to the Alta and Snowbird ski resorts in Utah, and winds gusting to 75 m.p.h. knocked down trees and some power lines. The gusting winds and cold temperatures made for dangerous conditions in Montana and Wyoming, meteorologist Bill Barlow said. Travel advisories were posted in both states and in the Dakotas. No serious accidents were reported, officials said.
