(ABC 6 News) — A historic snowstorm is wreaking havoc in our area this weekend. As of Saturday, 8:45 p.m., Minnesota State Patrol reported 403 crashes, 47 of them with injuries. One fatal crash west of the Twin Cities, 738 spinouts on the roads and at least 16 jack-knifed semis.
Authorities advise no travel in much of southwestern Minnesota, where a blizzard warning remains in effect as a major storm system blankets the Midwest.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation has closed several highways in the southwest due to the storm, which is expected to persist into Sunday. Driving conditions are difficult across the southern half of Minnesota.
