Wild storm leaves behind damage, injuries from Dakotas to East Coast

VALE, N.C. (AP) - The storm has moved on, but people from the Dakotas to North Carolina are dealing with the aftermath.

The massive storm that roared across the country this week unleashed dozens of tornadoes, rain, flooding and even snow in some places, leaving behind plenty of destruction.

It was heavy snow and strong winds in the Dakotas, where roadways were covered in ice, snow and slush yesterday. Conditions have improved this morning and more typical fall weather is in the forecast.

Eight tornadoes touched down in Indiana, three in Kentucky, and six in Ohio, including one with gusts of at least 111 mph that ripped through a village in the northwest part of the state, destroying several homes. Tornadoes were confirmed or suspected as far east as Virginia and power was out for a time to countless customers.
