A massive storm making its way through a big chunk of the United States brought a bit of everything: strong winds, rain, tornadoes and now even some snow for parts of the Midwest. The storm packed wind gusts of up to 81 mph Oct. 26 as it howled across the Midwest and South, snapping trees and power lines, ripping off roofs and delaying flights. The storm continued its trek early on Oct. 27, with snow falling in the Dakotas and Minnesota, in the north central part of the country. More strong winds were in the forecast in several other states.
