By Sunday afternoon, 879 flights had been cancelled into or out of United States airports, the website flightaware.com reported, including 115 flights in or out of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where two runways were open but almost 13 inches of snow combined with strong winds were making it hard to keep the runways open and the planes de-iced, spokesman Patrick Hogan said.

Delta Airlines flight attendant Victoria Flees trudges through the snow with her bags in downtown Minneapolis after her flight to Paris was grounded along with all other planes at the city's airport.

The National Weather Service predicted that a large swath of southern Minnesota, including Minneapolis and St. Paul, could get up to 20 inches of snow (51 centimeters) by the time the storm blows through on Sunday.

While the blizzard warning was lifted in the western part of the state, it remained in effect for far South Dakota on Sunday.

The storm finally let up in South Dakota, allowing the airport in the state's largest city, Sioux Falls, to reopen for the first time since Thursday.

In Michigan, in which snowfall was expected to get to 18 inches (46 cm) in a few locations, about 310,000 homes and businesses were without power as a result of an ice storm, even the majority of these at the southeast of the country.

The weather service also warned of potential coastal flooding along Lake Michigan in Wisconsin and IL, where Chicago residents were warned that waves could reach as high as 18 feet.

A powerful spring storm system was blamed for the deaths of at least three people across the Midwest on Saturday as blizzard conditions blanketed much of the Northern Plains.

The storms also killed a 1-year-old girl when a tree fell on a recreational vehicle where she was sleeping, the sheriff's office in Bossier Parish, Louisiana said.

In Wisconsin, a woman was killed when she lost control of the minivan she was driving and struck an oncoming SUV near Lewiston. An Idaho truck driver died when his semitrailer struck a semi in western Nebraska that had been stranded on a highway by the bad weather. Video showed uprooted trees, overturned cars, damaged buildings and downed power lines.

The storm made its mark in Texas, where hail the size of hen eggs fell south of Dallas, according to meteorologist Patricia Sanchez. Two runways were open, but winds were still strong and planes were being deiced, spokesman Patrick Hogan said.
