A record-breaking snowstorm pummeled Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota with high winds and heavy snow on March 13.
The so-called “bomb cyclone” tied or set preliminary, unofficial all-time low-pressure records in at least four locations, the Weather Channel reported.

The National Weather Service reported that Denver International Airport saw wind gusts of up to 75 mph, comparing the conditions to those of a Category 1 hurricane.
All flights were grounded at the airport.
The weather service said snow was falling at a rate of two inches per hour, and reported 1.8 inches at around noon.
Major highways and roads across the region were closed due to the poor weather conditions, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.
