A record-breaking snow storm struck the Midwest, including hard-hit Ohio, over the weekend causing major disruptions in travel. Schools in Columbus and other central Ohio districts were closed because sidewalks and side streets were still jammed by heaps of snow. Columbus, Ohio received over 20 inches and was the worst snow storm or record. Thousands of homes and businesses lost power along the storm’s path. Ohio had one traffic death linked to the weather, and four men died while shoveling snow. Dry weather is forecast in the region for the next two to three days, reducing fears of flooding along the Ohio River for now.
