Driving Conditions Expected To Worsen With Storm

March 30, 2014, 6:44 PM

Driving Conditions Expected To Worsen With Storm
PIERRE, SD -

Officials are advising drivers that travel may become difficult over the course of the night and into Monday.

A blizzard watch is in effect for portions of the state and could be upgraded into a warning at any time with snow accumulations up to two to three inches in the south and southeast, two to five inches in the southwest, five to nine inches in the west and northwest, ten inches or more north-central South Dakota, and four to eight inches in central and northeastern KELOLAND.

People who do have to travel should use extreme caution and visit www.safetravelusa.com/sd or dial 511.

If you do have to travel:

Wear your seatbelt

  • Travel during the day
  • Use highly traveled roads and highways
  • Keep family and friends updated of your travel plans
  • Keep a winter survival kit in your car
  • Travel with a charged cell phone
  • Do not hesitate to change travel plans

If you do get stranded:

  • Stay with your vehicle
  • Run the engine and heater for about ten minutes an hour to stay warm
  • When the engine is running, open a window slightly to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning and periodically clear snow from the exhaust pipe.
  • If it’s dark, turn on your interior light so rescuers can see you
  • Put up a distress flag, or a large colored cloth on the ground to attract attention

Stay with KELOLAND.com for future updates.
