A strong winter snow storm has affected much of Nebraska, closing parts of Interstate 80 and leaving thousands without power.

The number of Nebraska utility customers without power because of the snow and wind has been cut to less than 4,000 by midday Tuesday.  Earlier in the day more than 20,000 were without power.

Interstate 80 has been closed in both directions from Lincoln to North Platte.  Learn more about the storm’s impact here: http://bit.ly/1PT6bTa
