Answer: 16″ in Estherville. Other storm reports across the region were 12″ at Emmetsburg and Logan, 13″ at Algona, 13.5″ at Britt, 14.3″ at Onawa, 15″ at Sac City and Storm Lake. All though 16″ might not seem like a lot of snow, 80 mph winds created white out conditions and 20′ drifts. Fifteen people died as a result of the storm and more than 100,000 livestock perished.

    Estherville, my new hometown. I moved here from Independence after losing my husband. No big snows here so far this winter, but it sure has been cold!
