DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- A powerful winter storm is dumping heavy snow on some Midwest and Plains states and is making travel difficult and dangerous for motorists.
In Minnesota, Interstate 94 between Alexandria and the North Dakota border closed as gusty winds and blowing snow reduced visibilities.
Heavy snow has also fallen in parts of Kansas, Nebraska, the Dakotas and Minnesota as the storm has swept northward through the region.
In Iowa, freezing rain and sleet have caused several fender benders on icy roads.
