Southeastern Minnesota Roads in Rough Shape After Snowfall
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Department of Transportation says roads in southeastern Minnesota were in rough shape and travel was not advised after a blast of winter weather dumped several inches of wet, heavy snow in some areas.
Wednesday's snowfall also led several school districts in southern and southeastern Minnesota to cancel classes Thursday.
Reports say snow was still falling across southeastern Minnesota and central Wisconsin at 6 a.m. Thursday.
MnDOT says travel was not advised in Albert Lea, Austin, Rochester, Winona and the Red Wing area.
In the metro area, northern suburbs and places north of Interstate 94 got little to no snow, but southern suburbs were digging out Thursday. The National Weather Service says Savage got 12 inches of snow, while Burnsville got 11.5. Apple Valley got 9.
