Duluth police advise no travel amid freezing rain

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Police in Duluth are urging residents to stay home because of freezing rain that has created dangerous driving conditions.

Authorities say roadways have become covered with ice, so citizens should avoid unnecessary travel in the Duluth area.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says driving conditions are difficult across a large area of northeastern Minnesota, and no travel is also advised in parts of central Minnesota including the Brainerd and Little Falls areas.

The National Weather Service issued freezing rain advisories for parts of central Minnesota and a winter weather advisory for northeastern and north-central Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin on Sunday because of the slick conditions.
