Iowa hit by tornadoes; Snow triggers avalanche
The transition from winter to spring is not coming easily. Storms producing hail, high winds and at least five tornadoes have ripped across north-central Iowa.
Also reporting damage are parts of Wisconsin and Illinois. A woman near Osage, Iowa, says she was sitting on a couch in her mobile home when she heard a "horrific roar" and things started blowing past the window. Jo Gudmonson says it took her breath away.
