Unexpected blizzard hits Chadron area

An unexpected blizzard that dropped up to three to five inches of snow in the Chadron area Tuesday evening caused havoc with traffic. Blowing snow and icy conditions led to the Nebraska State Patrol being called out for several motorists who had gone off the road.

The State Patrol said by 7 p.m. a number of reports had been received of vehicles sliding off roads due to blowing snow and snow packed routes, and travel in the area was not recommended.

The situation is much better today.
