Travel in Jamestown is virtually impossible after 10 inches of snow fell overnight, according to Sgt. Nick Hardy, shift commander of the Jamestown Police Department.

“There is no travel advised in Jamestown,” he said. “It’s just horrible. The chances of getting stuck are very high.”

The 10 inches of snow was measured at the North Dakota State Hospital at 6 a.m. The National Weather Service is predicting another 1 to 3 inches of snow today before the storm dissipates. As of 6 a.m., wind gusts of 51 mph were reported.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation closed Interstate 29 from Fargo to the Canadian border and Interstate 94 from Bismarck to Fargo. A no travel advisory has been issued for all areas of south central and northeastern North Dakota.

In Jamestown, Hardy reports snowplows have been called out to assist ambulances and crews are attempting to keep the roads to Jamestown Regional Medical Center open.

“Right now, we are having a tough time getting around in our all-wheel-drive SUVs,” he said.
