Iowa snowfall totals after overnight winter blast

Iowa State University MAP

DES MOINES, Iowa - The Mason City area is digging out, again.   

The Iowa State University Environmental Mesonet tracks snowfall totals, and puts the Mason City area in the 6-8 inch snow range this morning, along with much of the far north central and north eastern part of the state.

On Sunday the Mason City Police Department warned drivers that a Winter Storm Warning was issued  by the US National Weather Service, and police were responding to numerous accident reports.  (see post below).

Mason City isn't alone.   In Sioux Falls, just across the Iowa border in South Dakota, a jet ran off the snow-covered runway Sunday just before noon, and skidded onto its nose.  The plane came to a stop about 20 feet off the runway and passengers had to be off-loaded and transported to the terminal.  Local media reports no one was hurt.
