An Arctic blast continues to hold a firm grip across Minnesota. If you plan to travel, St. Patrol Lt. Gordon Shank encourages you to let family and friends know your plans:

“So in a situation where maybe your car does break down and they haven’t heard from you or you haven’t responded to the location you’re heading to they can check-in and you and maybe there’s a situation where maybe they are concerned that you are stranded you can reach out to us.”

Shank says if you do break down be sure to stay inside your vehicle. He says walking for help in these sub-zero temps can be deadly.
