[b]Major Storm Blows Into Area [/b]

People started digging out from under the seasons first major snow storm Tuesday morning.

A major winter storm moved into the area Sunday evening bringing with it strong northwesterly winds averaging 40-50 miles per hour and heavy snow. By Monday morning the system shut down schools, including Lyman Schools, and many businesses throughout South Dakota.

On Monday the National Weather Service revised the Winter Storm Warning for much of central South Dakota to a blizzard warning which remained in effect until midnight Monday.

Charlie Bowar of Kennebec measured about 12 inches Monday morning. The snow continued to fall all day Monday. Unofficial snow amounts Tuesday morning range from 20 inches in Kennebec to 14 inches at Gregory, 10 inches in Pierre, and about five inches in Murdo.
The South Dakota Department of Transportation closed I-90 between Kadoka and Sioux Falls Monday because of the hazardous road conditions. I-29 from Sioux Falls to Fargo, ND was also closed.

According to Lyman County Sheriff Don Manger I-90 through Lyman County was littered with vehicle stuck in snow drifts. We starting getting 911 calls early Monday morning from motorists stranded out on I-90, said Manger. With near white out conditions, poor visibility hampered rescue attempts.

High winds caused power outages Monday though out Lyman County and the surrounding area. Many locations across South Dakota were still with out power Tuesday morning.

I-90 travelers caught in the storm found shelter in local cafes, motels, and service stations until the Interstate was reopened Tuesday.
