SOUTH BEND, IND. (AP) - Heavy, wet snow has knocked out electrical service in northern Indiana and snarled morning traffic in southeast Michigan.

The National Weather Service said up to 7 inches of snow fell Monday morning in the Detroit area and northern Indiana got 4 inches.

Indiana Michigan Power reported nearly 1,900 customers blacked out in Indiana’s St. Joseph County as the weight of the snow snapped branches and power lines.

Monday’s snow came from a storm that swept through the Plains during the weekend. Wyoming and Nebraska closed highways Saturday and parts of western Nebraska had drifts up to seven feet high. Iowa got 10 inches Sunday.

Farther south, the storm system produced severe thunderstorms Sunday in Kentucky and Tennessee.
