Bad Night On I-94 (update)

Comments Off

This is looking to be a very bad night to be traveling I-94. The road is shut across North Dakota and there has been reports of a number of traveling problems in Northern Minnesota.

The Minneapolis Tribune is reporting that the 100 car number is a little high, but there is no doubt that the road is closed due to ice and snow.

Locally, there has been one reported death on I-94 in Sauk Center with a blizzard warning for counties in west-central and northwestern Minnesota, including Todd and Pope counties and the cities of Alexandria and Long Prairie.

(update) After opening this am at 10, I-94 is closing again between Alexandria and the North Dakota border tonight.

The St Cloud Times is reporting:

Snow, wind and cold are expected tonight in St. Cloud, with worst conditions to the west, said Bob Weisman, St. Cloud State University meteorology professor. He recommends party goers pack a winter survival kit and choose a designated driver before heading out.
