On Saturday, the National Weather Service Omaha office reported that the damage survey team in Wayne found a some spots in an industrial park that suggested an EF-4 tornado had touched down. Mostly, however, the damage was rated EF-2 and EF-3, they said.

On Friday and Saturday, several feet of snow fell across Wyoming and South Dakota, bringing blizzard conditions to the region.

Numerous roadways were closed and thousands were without power. As much as 44 inches fell northwest of Rapid City in Lead, S.D., a National Weather Service observer reported.
