Storm's aftermath prompts Minn. emergency order

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- A fierce winter storm that left many Minnesota roads iced over or impassable has prompted Gov. Mark Dayton to issue an emergency order.

Dayton declared the emergency Friday. It calls out the National Guard to help with recovery and sheltering of stranded motorists in parts of central and southeastern Minnesota.

A winter storm dumped almost a foot of snow on many parts of the state, and strong winds have caused visibility. Some major routes have been closed or are considered hazardous due to drifting snow and compacted ice on surfaces. Emergency shelters were opened in some communities.

Dayton's order is needed to make sure the Guard is mobilized and reimbursed for costs.
