BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A spring blizzard that dumped up to 20 inches of snow in parts of the Upper Midwest isn't increasing flooding fears.

National Weather Service meteorologists say there wasn't much of a flood threat going into Monday's storm, and the snow that fell didn't have a lot of water in it.

Residents in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota were digging out on Tuesday as major roadways reopened, including large stretches of interstate highways in the Dakotas. Many schools were opening late.

The blizzard set snowfall records in the North Dakota cities of Grand Forks and Bismarck and also a rainfall record in Bismarck that had stood for 137 years.

In Minnesota, a tornado caused damage at three farms in Yellow Medicine County on Monday. No one was hurt.
