400,000 Customers Without Power in Wake of Draco Midwest Storm


Reuters reports that 400,000 customers in 13 states have lost power as a result of Draco. Some quotes from beyond the jump:

""At this point the storm is starting to pull slowly away from the state, but we still have widespread snow across much of Iowa," says Kevin Skow, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. "That should slowly taper off during the mid-morning hours from west to east.""

"One suspected twister damaged buildings, snapped trees, downed power lines and flipped vehicles near downtown Mobile, Alabama, early on Thursday, but there were no reports of injuries, authorities said."
