Dangerous roads

Waterloo (KWWL) - There's no doubt, it's a dangerous night to be on the road. As of Tuesday at 5 p.m., every road in our viewing area is at least partially covered in snow.

In just a few hours Cedar Rapids Police responded to almost two dozen accidents alone. Interstate 80 is still closed in Johnson County after a multi-vehicle accident. At least two semis were completely totaled.

The crash happened near West Branch. The Iowa State Patrol has not released any information.

There are near white-out conditions along Highway 20 in Black Hawk County Tuesdaythis afternoon. Light snow is still very dangerous on the roads when semis kick it up, making visibility very difficult.

Visibility is also the problem on Highway 218 in Bremer County.

Finally, drivers in Dubuque had to take it easy on snow-covered streets, while the snow shovel squad kept sidewalks clear.
