Weather update: Out like a lion
The county advised no unnecessary travel on Tuesday, including enforcing a snow emergency, due to the massive storm system that dumped 13 inches of snow on the Detroit Lakes area.
Sheriff Tim Gordon said everyone was having a tough time on the roads, including plows and emergency vehicles.
At 2 p.m. yesterday, the City of Detroit Lakes declared a snow emergency. No one was allowed on roads except to drive to or from work, and for true emergencies.
