A blizzard in North Dakota led to a 100-vehicle pileup on I-94, KFYR-TV reports. Drivers were stranded for hours near Fargo with visibility less than 10 feet in some areas. “It was a little surreal there for a while,” said one observer. No life-threatening injuries have been reported. I-94 is now closed, as is I-29, notes AOL News. Click here to see video of the pileup.

Some areas of the Western US have seen 2 feet of snow as well as intense wind and rain, reports AP. Northern Arizona highways were shut down amid snow and ice; even Phoenix residents witnessed a wintry mix. Some 22 inches of snow hit a Colorado resort, and parts of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota face a blizzard warning.
