A storm dumped more than 10 inches of snow on parts of Michigan, causing crashes that claimed at least two lives and canceling tomorrow's classes for tens of thousands of children.

Ann Arbor and the Jackson County community of Liberty got 10-and-a-half inches of snow, with 10 inches at spots in Huron, St. Clair and Kalamazoo counties.

At least 150 school districts, including the state's largest in Detroit, announced the cancellation of classes tomorrow because of the storm.

By late afternoon, AAA Michigan had helped more than 3,000 motorists.

The fatal crashes happened on U.S. 23 in Monroe County and Interstate 94 in Berrien County.
