SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — While we can all take a breath that this late winter storm is about over in KELOLAND, the snowstorm still affects travelers tonight. I-29 remains closed from Watertown to the North Dakota border and is expected to remain closed overnight Wednesday, April 5 due to poor visibility caused by high winds and drifting snow.
No travel is advised on secondary highways in central and northeast South Dakota. Travel in these areas is dangerous, and drifts continue to be caused by snow blown from gusty winds. www.sd511.org
