Minnesotans digging out from two-day storm
Travel remains difficult even as I-90 and roads in southern Minnesota reopen
February 24, 2023
Clearing driveways and clearing freeways, Minnesotans on Thursday began digging out from a two-day storm that socked much of the state. The storm closed schools and business, shut down highways and forced city dwellers to scramble to find places for their cars.
As conditions improved, the Minnesota Department of Transportation lifted travel warnings across south-central Minnesota and reopened Interstate 90 from Worthington to the South Dakota border just after noon Thursday.
The powerful storm didn't bring quite as much snow as originally forecast, said National Weather Service meteorologist Paige Marten.
