FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A weekend blizzard in the eastern Dakotas broke some longstanding weather records.

The National Weather Service says in South Dakota, Aberdeen had 8.4 inches of snow Sunday, breaking the city's record for the date of 3.4 inches set 65 years ago. Huron had 9 inches, breaking that city's 54-year-old record of 4.9 inches.

In North Dakota, Fargo set a record with 9.3 inches of snow, breaking the city's 60-year-old record of 3.1 inches. Grand Forks had 4.8 inches, breaking its record for the date of 3.1 inches, set 18 years ago.

Some parts of the region got even more snow, with a foot or more.
