Parts of the Midwest are recovering from violent spring storms including tornadoes. Meanwhile, it was a snowy Mother's Day for residents in Colorado.

It was a frightening scene in Nebraska overnight as tornado-force winds brought powerlines crashing down and ripped apart a farmhouse.

Debris scattered throughout downtown Sutton, Nebraska area after businesses took a direct hit - miraculously - only one minor injury was reported.

In Elkhorn, Nebraska residents emerging from basements and shelters found trees down on homes and cars.

"It's stressful. How are you going to get to work? But at least nobody's hurt."

A spring storm brought over a foot of snow to parts of Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska.

The weather shut down portions of Interstate 80 in Wyoming and Nebraska. The heavy, wet snow was still falling in the Denver area Monday morning but wasn't sticking much to streets. Driving conditions were more difficult in the mountains.

About two dozen flights have been cancelled at Denver International Airport and delays are expected as planes deice.
