ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota State Patrols is advising no travel throughout much of Minnesota because of icy and snow-covered roads following a winter storm.

Road conditions have prompted all State Patrol command staff to suspend their daily duties and provide assistance on state highways.

State Patrol Lt. Col. Matt Langer says veteran troopers in several parts of Minnesota say the conditions are as bad as they've seen in 25 years.

Langer says motorists should avoid traveling unless it's absolutely necessary.

The patrol expects road conditions to remain treacherous for the next several days.
