A winter storm that lasts until Dec. 8 drops over 25 inches on the Twin Cities and nearly 35 on Duluth.

The snow total in Duluth is the second-most for a single storm in city history, trailing only the Halloween blizzard of 1991.

The 24-hour total from the 5th to the 6th brings 25.4 inches to Duluth, which still stands as a record.

No deaths are reported, and the massive snowfall comes just two weeks after The Great Appalachian storm of 1950 in the northeast U.S., which killed 353.
