High wind speeds have created tough driving conditions for most of eastern KELOLAND Thursday.
At 1 p.m., the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said the county’s highway department plows were hitting the roads. They reminded people to not crowd the plow and to use headlights driving through the blowing snow.
Many school districts are letting out early Thursday because of the blowing snow. You can see a list of school closures here.
The winds will remain high throughout the afternoon and early evening Thursday.
KELOLAND’s Dan Santella tweeted out a picture of Interstate 29 just south of Sioux Falls. Visibility was low.
LC Highway Dept. is getting loaded up and hitting the roads. The winds have picked up and snow is blowing across the roads. DON’T CROWD THE PLOW and remember to turn your headlights on if you are out and about. /A23 pic.twitter.com/V60cNz69sf— Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Canton, SD (@lincosheriffsd) February 14, 2019
