Autumn storms are threatening much of the Midwest, dumping heavy snow in South Dakota, spawning a tornado in Nebraska and threatening possibly dangerous thunderstorms from Wisconsin to Oklahoma.
A foot of snow had already fallen in the northern South Dakota's Black Hills early Friday.
John Chamberlain with the National Weather Service in Rapid City tells South Dakota Public Broadcasting that the storm is one of most intense fall storms in a long time in the area. No travel was advised on some western South Dakota roads and some schools canceled classes.
Other states in the storm's path include Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri. Even Texas could be impacted.
In South Dakota, as much as 30 inches of snow could fall in the Black Hills, with 12 inches on the plains.
