Public Safety Update: March Blizzard

Posted on 3/11/2011

For Immediate Release

For more information, please call Lt. Jody Skogen, ND Highway Patrol, 701-527-4684.

Available HP troopers are out helping rescue stranded motorists. However, rescue efforts are being hindered by motorists failing to heed the travel advisory.

We have possibly hundreds of motorists stranded; stranded motorists may not be assisted until sometime tomorrow.

Motorists should remain inside their vehicles but should make sure to make sure tailpipes are clear.

Motorists should only run their cars intermittently to avoid CO2 poisoning and to conserve fuel.

Anyone involved in a collision during the storm who hasn't reported it to law enforcement should call the ND HP on Monday, March 14 at 701-328-5580.
