Storm system brings winds, reports of tornadoes in Midwest after dumping snow on Rockies

 


DES MOINES, Iowa — A fast-moving storm system dropped both snow and rain over portions of the Midwest on Wednesday, packing strong winds that flipped semitrailers, damaged industrial park buildings and downed power lines in parts of Iowa and Nebraska.

National Weather Service officials said the system, which began Tuesday around Utah and moved eastward into the country's midsection, dumped more than a foot of snow on the Rockies before creating conditions ripe for tornadoes. But they said the weather wasn't quite as warm as it could have been, so the threat decreased.
