Monster storms and heavy snowfall has wreaked havoc across the Northern Plains, upper Midwest, and parts of the South.

Snow fell in Minnesota at such a heavy rate that the region met its monthly record in just one day

In St. Paul, cars were left buried while others left overnight along emergency routes were towed.

"We were just going to move our car in the morning and then it was gone," Pequot Lakes, Minn., resident Nate Greer said.

Thick snow covered areas of Wisconsin, forcing snow plow operators and towing companies to work overtime.

Darin Lind, owner of Duke's Towing welcomed the work, saying "It's nice to see some snow. It's nice to see winter here. It gets business back to usual."

Meanwhile, tornadoes plagued parts of Louisiana and Florida with more than a dozen twisters reported on Sunday.

One struck the town of Baker, La., where strong winds tore the roof off a car wash, littering streets with debris.

"It was real scary. Everything was just flying around, just tossed around," Mayor Harold Rideau said, describing the ordeal.

In Edgewater, Fla., 30 mobile homes were destroyed when a twister ripped through the town.

One resident said her husband called her at work and said it was not good and insisted she return home immediately.

More severe weather is expected today in Florida with possible tornadoes from Orland all the way down to Miami.
