A winter storm has left tough driving conditions in its wake Thursday morning throughout southern Manitoba as well as North Dakota.

Update (12:50 p.m.):

The eastbound lanes of Highway 1 have been closed between Deacon's Corner (Highway 207) and Highway 12. 


Earlier:

RCMP in Manitoba have recommended not travelling on Highway 1 east of Winnipeg this morning. One jackknifed semi on the Highway was blocking traffic around 9:30 this morning.

RCMP say that at least three other semis were in the ditch along Highway 1. Staff Sergeant Harold Laninga asks people not to venture out onto the roads unless absolutely necessary and to use extreme caution if they do go out.

Highway 59 north of Winnipeg also has many vehicles in the ditch. 

And in North Dakota several highways have been closed. That includes I-29 from the Canadian border, south to Fargo. While other highways in the state are open, travel is not advised on many of them.

Police in Grand Forks, ND took to social media asking people to stay off the highways after dealing with stuck vehicles all night.

A sheriff said in the video, "Please stay home, we don't need to be dealing with this all day. Stay safe."
