'Whiteout Conditions': Blizzard Hits Red River Valley

Snow bands and strong northwest winds hit the Red River Valley on December 23, with “whiteout conditions” reported near Fargo, Minnesota, on Wednesday morning.

This video, posted by the Minnesota State Patrol’s Sgt. Jesse Grabow, shows limited visibility and blowing snow in west central Minnesota. Authorities said a vehicle went off the road into the median on Highway 10, between Moorhead and Glyndon.

“Please do not travel unless it’s absolutely necessary,” the Minnesota State Patrol warned. Credit: Minnesota State Patrol via Storyful
