Travel difficult in much of Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Western Minnesota is hit hardest by a storm that dumped a foot of snow in the region and stranded motorists.

Several highways in the area are closed, including Interstate 94 from Alexandria to Moorhead, and Highways 10 210. Sheriff's deputies in Grant and Douglas counties assisted drivers who became stranded.

The National Weather Service says Glenwood in Pope County got 12 inches of snow Sunday. Walker has about 11 inches and Hillman has 10 inches. The Minnesota Department of Transportation reported early Monday that most roadways in the state present difficult driving conditions.

The State Patrol handled 326 crashes since Sunday morning, including 42 that involved injuries.

Windy conditions Monday could make the morning commute in the Twin Cities more challenging.
