TREACHEROUS COMMUTE: Drivers Faced Whiteout
While the heavy snow is over, wind remains a concern for drivers Thursday night.
A Blizzard Warning in place for much of the evening covering Polk, Warren, jasper and Marion counties expires at 9 p.m.
With a layer of ice and blowing snow, commuters found the roads treacherous.
Authorities responded to numerous accidents as roads resembled parking lots. I-80 eastbound is blocked due to a crash near Waukee. Hwy 169 also has a pile-up blocking traffic.
The conditions have had an impact on several community events. The Roosevelt vs. North/Hoover wrestling meet is among the casualties. For all school and business delays and closures click here.

That was one of the worst drives of my life. Stay inside people.—
