MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Heavy, blowing snow is causing problems in western Minnesota.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is advising no travel in west-central Minnesota. The no travel advisory includes Becker, Big Stone, Clay, Douglas, Grant, Mahnomen, Otter Tail, Pope, Stevens, Swift, Traverse and Wilkin counties.

The Minnesota State Patrol says troopers handled 239 crashes and 398 vehicles off the road during the day Sunday. There were no serious injuries or fatalities.

Some parts of northern Minnesota were expected to see up to a foot of snow. Visibility in Duluth was less than a block at one point. Police in St. Cloud were advising no unnecessary travel. Some areas will be under a blizzard warning Sunday night.

Several cities declared snow emergencies, including Minneapolis and St. Paul.
