CHICAGO (AP) - It's blamed for nearly a dozen tornadoes, hurricane-force wind gusts, torrential rain and even snow.
That's just part of the impact of a massive storm system that has been moving across the Midwest and parts of the South.
The storm has packed wind gusts of up to 81 miles an hour, snapping trees and power lines, ripping off roofs and delaying flights.
And some residents of North Dakota have awakened to eight inches of snow. A blizzard warning is in effect today for the state, with up to 10 inches expected in some areas.
The storm is also linked to possible tornadoes in Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, Tennessee and North Carolina.
In suburban Chicago, a woman was injured when a branch fell from a large tree and crashed into her car. Doctors had to remove the branch from the woman. Her husband tells the Chicago Sun-Times she wants to keep it -- possibly for an art project.
