Many first responders and highway crews are advising no travel from western to central and now even parts of eastern South Dakota. Interstate 90 remains closed from Rapid City to Mitchell and Interstate 29 from Watertown to the North Dakota/South Dakota state line. Also, our neighbor to the north has Interstate 94 closed from Dickinson to Jamestown, and towards the south in Nebraska, parts of Interstate 80 are closed this morning.
