White Out Conditions and Black Ice Making Friday Travel Treacherous

NORFOLK – Drivers in northeast Nebraska are struggling with their morning commute on Friday.

Friday morning snow combined with wind gusts to create near white-out conditions in Northeast Nebraska. The Norfolk Regional Airport measured a wind gust of 47 miles per hour just before 7 a.m.

There were multiple reports of cars and semis in ditches along U.S. Highway 81 north of Norfolk, but no serious accidents had been reported.
