Travel Advisories Posted for the Surrounding Area

According to the Iowa Department of Transportation, the number of roads marked “travel not advised” has been growing as winds blow snow off highways, uncovering the ice beneath, while creating drifts in other areas.

Travel isn’t advised on highways around Storm Lake including Highway 71, 7, 3, and 110 due to blowing and drifting snow.

Towing is not recommended in many counties especially in central and southern Iowa, and that includes Calhoun and Carroll counties.
