Survey teams with the National Weather Service have confirmed nine tornadoes so far from the severe storms that hit Arkansas on Friday and Saturday.

The National Weather Service says an EF-1 tornado struck Upshur and Harrison counties last week. I spoke to them earlier today and they said due to the large scale of the damage and path of the storms it may take them until late in the day to have a full report.

Police said 48-year-old Anthony George of Greensboro was killed about 5:45 p.m. Sunday when a tree fell on his vehicle. These winds were estimated at between 105-110 miles per hour.

The storm damaged a roof, a carport and trees in the area. Enbridge made a decision to shut down the twin pipelines until weather conditions improve in the Straits of Mackinac, which links Lake Huron and Lake Michigan, Duffy said.

The NWS office in Negaunee Township as of this morning only had one reading reported from the Dickinson-Iron county area - 9 inches of snow just north of Iron Mountain.

Duke Energy reported about 37,000 customers without power in North Carolina.

In Mitchell, snow plow crews made progress by clearing streets and roadways. Areas south of Highway 20 may have a little bit of rain mixing in as well, but it will be mostly snow across northern Iowa.

In the month of April, 14.8 inches of snow has fallen in St. Cloud.

The weather is being blamed for cancelling flights at Gerald R. Ford International, tipping a Coopersville Firetruck onto its side and injuring four firefighters, shutting down the Mackinac Bridge because of high winds, and suspending operations of Enbridge's Line 5 oil pipeline because of 12 foot waves. The system moved into the region Friday.
