Winter Storm Pounds Minnesota Again
(AP) A powerful late winter storm has closed schools for a second day in Duluth. Superintendent Bill Gronseth says some city roads remain in poor condition due to blizzard-like conditions that socked the area on Leap Day. The storm caused widespread closures on Wednesday. Thousands of customers lost power when high winds snapped power lines. Firefighters were called to West Duluth to help get people out of a stalled elevator because of a power outage. Wind gusts measured up to 65 mph on the Blatnik Bridge in Duluth. A gale warning was posted at Lake Superior where huge waves pummeled the Duluth shoreline.
