GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — After what was the most significant winter storm since the Christmas week blizzard, some cities are shoveling more than a half foot of new snow.

The heaviest swath of snow fell in northern Ottawa and Kent counties into far western Montcalm County and southern Muskegon County, where 8 inches or more fell in several locations:

11.5 inches just west of Greenville, Montcalm County
10.0 inches in Spring Lake, Ottawa County
8.8 inches near Comstock Park, Kent County
8.6 inches east of Marne, Kent County
8.2 inches in Belmont, Kent County
8.0 inches in Roosevelt Park, Muskegon County
8.0 inches in Walker, Kent County

There was a broader swath of 5 to 8 inches for many locations near and north of the I-96 corridor:

7.6 inches in Grandville, Kent County
7.5 inches near Grand Haven, Ottawa County
7.5 inches near Holland, Ottawa County
7.5 inches in Lake Odessa, Ionia County
7.2 inches in East Grand Rapids, Kent County
7.0 inches in Wyoming, Kent County
6.5 inches in Sheridan, Montcalm County.
5.5 inches near Caledonia, Kent Co.
