FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Blizzard conditions in the eastern Dakotas have led to a major disruption in travel in the region.
Interstate 94 between Jamestown and Fargo is scheduled to reopen for east- and west-bound trafic at 10 a.m. Travelers are still urged to use caution when traveling.
The storm that brought heavy snow and strong winds contributed to numerous accidents, including a seven-vehicle chain-reaction crash on I-94 in southeastern North Dakota. The Highway Patrol says there were only minor injuries.
Patrol troopers and snowplow drivers rescued several stranded motorists in the region. Officials in the southeastern North Dakota town of Fairmount opened an emergency shelter for nearly three dozen stranded motorists.
