On Wednesday, when the storm rolled into Minnesota, the patrol reported nearly 400 crashes and spinouts through the evening.

Weather officials say the storm is expected to swirl over Minnesota until Friday. Conditions are the worst in southwestern Minnesota, where blowing snow has led to roads closures and strong winds have snapped hundreds of power lines.
