Transcript for First Blizzard of the Season Makes Way Across the Midwest
Now let's turn to Phillip Mena who drew the short straw in the middle of the first snow of the season in Sioux Falls, south Dakota. Good morning, Phillip. Reporter: Michael, good morning. Yeah, that first major snowstorm of the season has arrived here in Sioux Falls, giant stockpiles of this rock salt about the size of a three-story building at the ready. Of our 500 tons of this will be used today to help keep those roads safe. Winter is finally here. Up to a foot of snow falling in Wyoming and Colorado. Much of it touching down at rush hour. The slick roads and poor visibility leading to dangerous driving conditions. At least two people died in accidents on I-70 near Denver. The freeway shuttle down in both directions. This 15-car pileup caused by a mix of snow and sleet. Massive delays at Denver international airport. We were delayed until 4:00 and then they canceled it and said we'll have to wait till the morning. Reporter: In Wyoming, dozens of accidents as drivers fought to stay on the road on interstate 80. The snow started falling here about an hour ago and it is not letting up. Up to ten inches could fall today as this storm heads east. Michael. All right, thank you, Phillip. Stay warm and be safe. Ginger, you have more on where it's heading next. Blasting the east. Can you see this out of Sturges, South Dakota. Roads look like this for so many folks and a lot of people hit the road today and air travel for Thanksgiving because they have next week off. A big deal with the storm blowing through. Blizzard warnings or parts of western Minneapolis driving along 94 to Fargo. That will be travel not advised. Don't do it. Give it 24 hour, Aberdeen and snowfall, not just a couple inches. Some will get 6 to 12 inches of snow in northern Minnesota but even in Minneapolis you get the wind gusting to 30, 40 miles per hour and probably west of them you have that blizzard warning, just a real quick look at the cold, the chill is no joke. Feels like 5 in Denver. Remember when we were talking 80. Out there golfing and all that. Okay. Whoo. What a difference. Distant memory. Thank you so much.
