DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A winter storm dropped 4 to 8 inches of snow in Iowa, and created hazardous travel conditions just a few days before Christmas.
The heaviest snow fell in south-central Iowa, but the majority of the state received at least some snow overnight into Sunday morning.
Strong winds followed the snow and helped create hazardous driving conditions.
State Transportation Department engineer Bob Younie says drivers should consider staying home if they don’t need to travel Sunday.
One accident blocked westbound Interstate 80 for three hours near Williamsburg Sunday morning.
Another accident was blocking westbound I-80 near Waukee around 11 a.m.
