Drivers Beware Of Blizzard Conditions

Date posted - February 1, 2016

Kurtz, Vincent 495 Clarinda, IANorthwest Iowa — With the blizzard conditions that are forecast for our area tomorrow, the Iowa State Patrol has some safety tips for you.

Trooper Vince Kurtz says driving in a blizzard is completely different than trying to drive in a normal winter snow.

In short, Kurtz says, if your trip isn’t absolutely necessary, don’t go.

He says if travel is absolutely an emergency, be sure and pack a Winter Survival Kit.

Trooper Kurtz stressed, however, that unless it’s an absolute emergency, you should avoid travelling during a blizzard.
