The blizzard is taking it's toll on central Iowa. The storm is bringing in more moisture from the south. Albia is reporting 4.5 inches of snow with drifts approaching 1 foot in depth.
The blizzard picture is from Missouri. The parents of one of our producers sent in the picture. It goes along with the extended line of blizzard warnings that cover Oklahoma...Missouri...Iowa..Illinois... Wisconsin...Michigan and Indiana.
The big blast of the blizzard will blow through later tonight....but I-80 is closed on the west bound lanes near Altoona. Several semi trucks have jack-knifed. Many accidents are being reported. Stay put if you can tonight.
