MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Roads have reopened in southwestern Minnesota but transportation officials are still advising no travel in south-central and southwestern parts of the state because of blizzard conditions.

A blustery winter storm made travel hazardous in much of the state Thursday. The State Patrol reports 654 crashes statewide, with 87 involving injuries but none serious or fatal.

The Star Tribune reports three crashes involved troopers getting hit, although none was seriously hurt.

Snow also made roads slippery in the Twin Cities for the evening commute.

A blizzard warning remains in effect for west-central and southern Minnesota until 3 a.m. Friday.

Minnesota remained in the deep freeze Thursday with morning temperatures below zero and wind chill readings in the negative double digits.
