Heavy snow and high winds in northeastern Minnesota left hundreds without power and caused hazardous travel conditions on Wednesday, while the southeastern region of the state experienced rain, large hail and tornado warnings.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office said slippery conditions likely contributed to the death of a 57-year-old driver who was killed about 6 p.m. Wednesday when his vehicle slid off a road and rolled over in a ditch.

The Duluth Public School District canceled classes Thursday while other schools planned to operate with a 2-hour delay.

In southern Minnesota, heavy rain and hail fell Wednesday evening.

The weather service issued tornado warnings and watches, but there were no reports of touchdowns or major damage.
