Dayton calls out National Guard amid snowstorm
With more than a foot of fresh snow on the ground in some areas, Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton on Friday issued an emergency order directing the Minnesota National Guard to assist stranded motorists.
The Minnesota State Patrol was advising no travel throughout much of the state due to snow-and-ice-covered roads.
Road conditions prompted all State Patrol command staff to suspend their daily duties and provide assistance on state highways.
