All eyes are on Moore, Oklahoma following this week’s massive tornado. The National Weather Service has confirmed the twister an EF5. Five years ago an EF3 tornado tore through parts of northern Colorado with the most damage occurring in Windsor.
Arbor Day celebrations have come and gone, but winter weather is gripping the Plains and Upper Midwest. The storm that dumped snow in the Rockies a day earlier is threatening to blanket parts of the region with up to 8 inches of snow on Thursday.
The National Weather Service warns: "Significant accumulations of snow continue to be reported across portions of southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa, with over 15 inches already in Dodge Center, (Minn.)."
