Officials in northern Arizona are searching for more than 30 hunters who became stranded in snow after a powerful winter storm swept through the state.

Gerry Blair of the Coconino County sheriff's office says authorities received 11 reports, some from hunters themselves or others in the field, and some from family members reporting the hunters overdue.

Blair says the reports will be prioritized based on the hunters' locations, the number in each party and the estimated threat.

The storm that moved out Tuesday dumped more than 20 inches of snow in some areas, caused one death and dozens of accidents, closed long stretches of Interstates 40 and 17, and kept students out of school.
