OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - More than 200 miles of Interstate 80 have been closed in Nebraska because heavy snow and strong winds combined to create blizzard conditions Tuesday.

The Nebraska Department of Roads closed I-80 between Lincoln and North Platte because of the dangerous conditions.

Officials say the wind and snow are creating blizzard conditions across much of the state. So officials are not recommending travel across most of Nebraska.

Numerous roads in central and eastern Nebraska were closed Tuesday as the storm continued to drop snow on parts of the state. Most of the closures were in an area crossing the state diagonally from the Kansas border near McCook in southwest Nebraska to Sioux City, Iowa, in the northeast.
