‘For the month of April it’s not uncommon to get the snow. Now, snow of this magnitude – this is something that’s a little bit more unique,’ said Rick Krolak, a National Weather Service (NWS) supervisor. 

Record cold temperatures in the 20s and 30s, snowy weather and slick conditions will continue into the Easter Weekend, KTVH reported.  

In Kentucky, Louisville’s Mayor Greg Fischer declared a state of emergency in the city and Jefferson County Public Schools cancelled classes in response to storm damage. 

Meanwhile, a possible tornado tore roofs off homes in a public housing community and peppered cars with debris Wednesday night in rural Greene County, Alabama, located about 90 miles southwest of Birmingham. 

Billy Hicks, who lives in the area, told WBMA-TV he was lying down when he heard a rush of wind that lasted only a few seconds. 

‘I jumped up and put my clothes on, put my shoes on when everything was over with. I come to the side door and looked across the street. I knew that something had hit all these houses,’ said Hicks, who got in his car to go check on neighbors.    

‘Most of the people we talked to as we were doing a house-to-house search explained that they were in their bathroom or an interior hallway, so they were listening to those warnings and without that I think we would have been looking at a much different situation,’ he said. 

Authorities swarmed the area but didn’t find anyone who was hurt, said Zac Bolding of Greene County Emergency Medical Services.

Tornadoes were also reported Tuesday in parts of Iowa and Minnesota

In Arkansas, a woman died when a tree toppled on her home in Rison shortly after 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, pinning her to the couch, said Stephen McClellan, Cleveland County´s emergency management coordinator. Rison is about 55 miles south of Little Rock. 

A day earlier, 23 people were injured in the central Texas town of Salado. The National Weather Service in Fort Worth said Wednesday that the twister was rated an EF3 with peak wind speeds of 165 mph.

Tornadoes were also reported Tuesday in parts of Iowa and Minnesota. Residents in the small southeastern Minnesota farming community of Taopi were cleaning up after a devastating tornado destroyed half of the town’s homes, toppled tall trees and left piles of debris.

In Montana and North Dakota, much of the region reported at least one foot of snow. At least one mountain community had already reported nearly four feet of snow Wednesday morning. 

The entirety of Interstate 94 was closed for nearly a day, however the North Dakota Department of Transportation has reopened the highway between Bismarck to Jamestown. The remainder of the interstate is expected to remain closed for the foreseeable future.

A No-Travel Advisory remains in effect for the state as meteorologists predict the spring snowstorm could become one of the biggest in a quarter century. 

A separate weather system brought thunderstorms, high winds, heavy rain and hail across the midwest and into the south.  

A tornado that was rated EF2 with peak wind speeds of 130 mph struck Taopi near the Iowa border late Tuesday night, tearing the roofs off houses, overturning vehicles and bringing down power lines. There were no reports of serious injuries.

Volunteers arrived Wednesday to help residents clean up the debris in the community of about 80 people. Family members sifted through rubble looking for keepsakes.

‘Half the town is gone,’ City Clerk Jim Kiefer said. Of Taopi’s 22 homes, at least 10 are beyond repair, with roofs and walls missing, he said. Kiefer said his house is OK, but his mother’s home is a total loss.

‘She won’t be going home,’ he said. 

Baron Weather forecasters claim the severity of the multiple storm systems remains uncertain, noting that some communities remain under ‘enhanced risk’ of tornadoes and fires.

Much of the central US region has already reported at least one foot of snow, while forecasters predict most areas will see two feet of accumulation by the time the system passes

The same storm system responsible for tornadoes in the south is responsible for record-setting snow in the northern Plains.

Billings, Montana reported 13.9 inches of snow Tuesday, making it one of the snowiest days the community has seen in decades, AccuWeather reported.

The last time Billings saw that much snow accumulated in one day was May 11, 1981 when 15 inches piled up. 

Other areas of Montana reported three to four feet of accumulation. Albro Lake, located in the mountains of southwestern Montana, reported 47 inches of snow. Nearby Pony, Montana record 36 inches.  

Residents across the state have prepared to be snowed in for the next few days and several school districts have already opted to close schools until the storm system passes.

‘It’s a little windy, it’s a little cold. I don’t know, it’s not that bad if you have your earbuds in or something, just kinda jam out, take it a minute at a time, and have at it,’ Gus Lindegren of Bismarck told the tv station, noting he was trying to get ahead of the snow. 

‘I grew up on a farm in North Dakota, and I don’t get too excited about blizzards. You just prepare for them, don’t do anything dumb,’ echoed Mike Deisz, also of Bismarck.

Rick Krolak of the National Weather Service office in Bismarck said the storm  brought to mind the blizzard of 1997 that hit on April 4 of that year, dumping up to two feet of snow in some areas, knocking out power to thousands of residents and leaving motorists stranded on major highways.

‘It’s definitely looking like it’s going to pack a punch,’ he said of the storm.

After the snowstorm wraps up, meteorologists warn temperatures in Montana, Wyoming and the Dakotas could plunge to as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Strong winds reaching speeds of 60 mph will follow the pounding snow, reaching as far as south and east as the central Plains, Great Lakes and Ohio Valley.

The core of the deep freeze will come Thursday and into Friday, AccuWeather reported, mostly impacting the north-central U.S.

Communities in the epicenter – Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota – will likely reach sub-zero temperatures while neighboring states will see temps in the single digits.

The deep freeze follows what was already a record cold morning for many areas throughout the Rocky Mountains.

Yellowstone National Park, in Montana, recorded temperatures of -15 degrees Fahrenheit Wednesday, a new daily record. That was reportedly the lowest temperature in the region.

Denver, the capital city of Colorado, set a record for the date with a low of 11 degrees Fahrenheit.

Across the state, near Akron, Colorado, a regional airport reported a drastic drop from 57 degrees Fahrenheit on Tuesday to 7 degrees on Wednesday. 

Low temperature records were also broken throughout Montana, including in Chinook, which saw a 113-year-old daily record fall with a low of 21 degrees Fahrenheit.

Meteorologists in Tennessee, as well as several other southern states, including Texas, are preparing for potent storms.

Meteorologist Reed Timmer described the system as ‘one of the more extreme, volatile events that we’ve seen so far this year for long-tracked, potentially strong to violent tornado potential,’ according to AccuWeather. 

Timmer added that Wednesday was ‘one of the most dangerous days we’ve had here in a few years across the mid-South.’ 

Two feet of snow were predicted across much of the state and northern cities such could see up to 30 inches by Thursday, when the weather system was expected to move northeast

Have you received Salvation from Jesus the Messiah? Time is running out. Jesus will return very soon. The signs of His return are everywhere in this crazy world we are living in. Please read below so that you can be saved. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The Words below are directly from the Bible, so you can trust them.

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)

“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
