MINNEAPOLIS — The Minneapolis, St. Paul and Anoka-Hennepin school districts are among those canceling classes as plows continue to clear more than a foot of snow from a record-breaking winter storm.

Minneapolis school officials say they called off classes Monday because it would be difficult for buses to get down side streets and because children might not be visible behind tall snowbanks.

Over the weekend law enforcement worked to keep up with hundreds of traffic accidents. About 750 flights were canceled over the weekend at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

Snow totals across the Twin Cities metro ranged from 12 to 16 inches.
