Dozens of people were rescued from their vehicles as a dangerous blizzard pummeled southern Minnesota on Sunday, creating massive snowdrifts that left roads littered with abandoned cars and made some impassable even for snowplows.

The State Patrol on Sunday afternoon advised no travel in southern Minnesota because of the whiteout conditions, which contributed to 165 crashes with 20 injuries and more than 400 spinouts.
