Iowa roads slick with freezing precipitation

AMES, Iowa (AP) - Freezing rain continues to cause travel problems in parts of Iowa, but the storm is slowly moving north and east out of the state.

The Iowa Department of Transportation said northeast Iowa was being hit the hardest late Sunday morning.

A section of Interstate 35 between Des Moines and Mason City was closed because of an accident Sunday morning.

Travel is moving especially slow on U.S. 18 between Algona and Spencer.

But little or no precipitation was falling in western and southwestern Iowa by late Sunday morning.

The department says it's best to postpone travel if possible until the front moves out.

The latest information about road conditions is available online at or by calling 511 in Iowa.
