Frightening drive through South Dakota blizzard caught on camera
(Reuters) - A video captured by a South Dakota meteorologist and posted on social media Wednesday shows 20 seconds of a scary drive through a heavy snow storm.
A thick gray fills the view in the footage as Matthew Dux, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, drives down a street, street lights, traffic signs, and other vehicles only appear at close range.
"It's not great out there at all!" Dux said in the Twitter post accompanying the video that it was taped south of the Sioux Falls airport. "Far too many people on the streets. No lights on, driving way too fast."
In another Twitter post, Dux posted a video about the snowfall falling over houses and a swing and slide for children. It showed that large flakes were falling and visibility was sometimes less than 30.5 meters.
The Sioux Falls Meteorological Service reported a new snowfall record of 2.8 inches on December 23. The previous record was 2.6 inches in 1987, the service said, predicting dangerously cold winds on Thursday.
"DO NOT TRAVEL!" was Dux's firm warning to others trapped in bad weather.
