Snowfall begins in Norfolk causing limited visibility
NORFOLK, Neb (KTIV/US92) -
Siouxland is getting hit with its first major snowfall in quite a while.
The snow started in Norfolk, NE around 1:30 Thursday afternoon with some flurries.
It escalated from there with pretty heavy snowfall by about 2 p.m. Visibility out on the west end of town was down to less than a mile in spots.
Road crews were out immediately clearing the way for folk, but roads have still been pretty slick in the area. Officials say there have been reports of a handful of minor car accidents in Norfolk because of the conditions, and businesses and schools have closed early all over the area.
To the north, the City of Pierce has declared a snow emergency effective at 6 p.m., while the City of Norfolk has yet to declare an official emergency.
