In Iowa, two people were killed and seven injured in a 25-vehicle pileup.

A chain reaction of crashes involving semitrailers and passenger cars closed down a section of the highway.
By comparison, airlines canceled more than 13,000 flights over a two-day period during a February 2011 snowstorm that hit the Midwest. And more than 20,000 flights were canceled during Superstorm Sandy.
