Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) - The Iowa Department of Public Safety says the Iowa State Patrol Communication Centers were busy fielding calls during this past weekend's major snowstorm.

According to preliminary totals, the Iowa State Patrol responded to 273 crashes from Saturday through 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.
There were 872 calls to help drivers in the same time period.

There may have been more calls that were not logged.  The DPS says the total number of emergency calls received is likely higher, since calls may not have been logged due to the extremely high volume of calls and radio traffic.
