2016 Super Storm Continues to Pound North Dakota

BISMARCK – Most of North Dakota has taken a beating this past week as the Super Storm continues to linger, with most of the western part of the state taking most of the beating. Blizzard warnings for much of western and central North Dakota through Tuesday afternoon were issued.

A Blizzard continues across most of western and central North Dakota, generally east of Us Highway 85. Northwest wind gusts to 55 mph will continue to cause zero visibility in blowing snow, with some roads may become blocked due to drifting snow.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NNDOT) and the North Dakota Highway Patrol, have extended the closure of I-94 from Dickinson to Fargo.

No travel advisories continue to be in effect for areas surrounding Bismarck, Minot, and to the east for Fargo, Grand Forks, and Valley City.

Travel will be dangerous, if not impossible, especially in rural areas. If you must travel, carry a winter survival kit in your vehicle and check the latest weather and road conditions before heading out.

Conditions will not improve until this evening.
