PERCIVAL, Iowa (AP) - Some motels are filling up ahead of a snowstorm that threatens to dump to a foot of snow in some parts of Iowa.

Krista Tillman is manager of the Super 8 motel near Percival, just off Interstate 29 in the southwest corner of Iowa. Tillman said the snow had been falling for about 90 minutes but she'd rented out about 30 of her motel's 45 rooms in the last 60 minutes. She expects to be sold out by 2 p.m., if not sooner.
A desk clerk at the nearby Americas Best Value Inn echoed Tillman, saying he expected his 80 rooms would be gone within a couple of hours.
