INTERNATIONAL MAIL UPDATE Minnesota’s first big snowstorm

Minnesota’s first big snowstorm has caused more than 150 flight cancellations at the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP) and a number of crashes statewide.

Snow was falling Monday morning across much of the north-central U.S., including South Dakota, Wisconsin and Minnesota, where the snow caused rush-hour havoc on the roads in Minneapolis and St. Cloud and also cancelled school in several districts. 180 accidents have been reported statewide.

The Rapid City Regional Airport in South Dakota had to be temporarily closed due to the weather conditions.
