SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A major snowstorm is creating dangerous travel conditions as it moves across the Plains.

Officials closed a section of Interstate 29 between Sioux City, Iowa, and Tea, South Dakota, because the snow and wind combined to limit visibility.

Several inches of snow had already fallen in the Sioux City area Tuesday morning, and the snow is expected to continue throughout the day.

At the Pilot Travel Center truck stop along I-29 in Sioux City, there wasn’t much traffic Tuesday morning because conditions are so bad

Manager Dean Habhab says the store is staying busy taking care of the truck drivers who pulled off the highway ahead of the storm and remain parked in the parking lot.

Habhab says he couldn’t see more than half a mile outside around midmorning Tuesday.
