Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) -While the conditions may not have seemed as bad in town, people in the rural areas weren't so lucky.

Early this morning, very strong winds caused blowing snow and whiteout conditions.

A WDAY crew tried to get near a rollover accident involving a semi on highway 10 between Dilworth and Glyndon, but they ran into a white wall that obscured visibility to the point they had to turn around. Other drivers in that area had the same problem.

David Branden, motorist: “Well I got up at 5 o'clock and left home about 6:30, I was going to Glyndon and I couldn't see the road. So I had to turn around and come back here.

Sgt. Mark Empting, Clay County Sheriff’s Office: “It's very difficult to see out there. I was just out there not too long ago, and I couldn't see past my hood at times.”

Roads were a lot less dangerous in town.
