  • Also in South Dakota, a small-engine plane carrying 12 people crashed shortly after takeoff Saturday afternoon, killing nine people and injuring three others. Federal aviation investigators are looking into whether snowy weather was a factor.
  • Major highways reopened Sunday in Wyoming and Colorado, a day after blizzard conditions clogged roads with snow drifts. Road crews were able to reopen all of Interstate 25 and most of I-80 in Wyoming early Sunday after strong winds abated. Major interstates in Colorado were also reopened. Still, authorities warned travelers to remain alert for slick conditions and blowing snow.
  • The city of Duluth, Minnesota, was blanketed with nearly 28 inches of snow as of noon Sunday. City officials said streets were impassible and residents should stay inside.
  • As of 12:30pm, more than 500 Sunday flights were cancelled in the US, compared with about 400 on Saturday, according to flight tracking site FlightAware.
  • In the mountain communities northeast of Los Angeles, nearly 9,000 utility customers were without power because of the storm.
  • Much of interior Massachusetts could get up to a foot of snow. Boston is projected to get between 3 and 6 inches of snow, but Mayor Marty Walsh says schools will be open on Monday.
