Windom Among Places Sheltering The Stranded

January 27, 2014, 8:32 AM

Windom Among Places Sheltering The Stranded
WINDOM, MN -

The small city of Windom in southwestern Minnesota is among the places sheltering motorists with no place to turn in the blowing snow that's made some roads impassable.

About 70 people, forced off the highways in whiteout conditions, stayed overnight at the Business Arts & Recreation Center where the Red Cross set up cots.

Center manager Greg Warner says four ping pong players from Sioux Falls, S.D., who went to a tournament in the Twin Cities, are among the stranded. Three dogs also stayed warm at the center.

Businessman Andy Winstrom says he was on his way from Omaha, Neb., to Minneapolis for a meeting Monday when he was directed off Highway 60 by the State Patrol. Winstrom says as soon as it got dark Sunday night, he couldn't see the highway because of blowing snow.
