No travel is advised in west central Minnesota

The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Minnesota State Patrol is keeping these highways closed, likely until at least Tuesday morning due to heavy snow, high winds and low visibility.

Fergus Falls and area schools will be two hours late Tuesday morning.

Highways closed include:

* Interstate 94 from Moorhead to Alexandria

* Highway 10 from Moorhead to Audubon

* Highway 210 from Breckenridge to Fergus Falls

All three highways will remain closed until further notice. In addition, no travel is advised on all highways in west central Minnesota.

Motorists should plan accordingly. When a road is closed it is illegal to travel in that area. Motorists can be fined up to $1,000 and/or sentenced to 90 days in jail. In addition, if travelers need to be rescued from a closed road, other expenses and penalties will apply.
