Meanwhile, according to The Independent on Thursday, hundreds of thousands in the region were without power due to the snowstorm. School districts in Ottawa, Kent and Kalamazoo counties closed for two days as the extreme weather created dangerous conditions across the region.
“This intense winter storm has had a major impact on our communities across the state,” said Captain Kevin Sweeney, deputy state director of emergency management and homeland security for the Michigan State Police, Thursday, according to the NewsMadura. The weather also led to the death of a volunteer firefighter and affected air travel. According to FlightAware, a flight tracking website, more than 1,100 flights into, into or out of the United States were canceled on Thursday.
