Emergency personnel respond to a rollover accident Monday afternoon about a half mile north of Luverne on Highway 75. Roads were ice- and snow-packed at the time of the incident. Driver Jeffery Buckley and passenger Cindy Buckley, both of Luverne, were not injured.
The Minnesota State Patrol recorded 121 traffic incidents from snow-packed and icy road conditions in its Marshall district during the past week. From Jan. 18 through 25, there were 38 property damage crashes, 10 injury crashes and 73 vehicles reported off the road, according to the Troy...
What a way to end 2015! The heavy snows of November quickly melted away due to extremely warm temperatures in December — particularly in the first half of the month.  Those living on gravel roads or having to travel on gravel roads may have decided the 4-wheel drive was necessary — not due to snow...

  Severe thunderstorms were certainly at the forefront of June weather for what has been a fairly lackluster severe storm season to this point.  The first event occurred Friday night/Saturday morning, July 19 and 20,with hail primarily being the issue Friday night and a second set of strong storms...
  For those of you not sure what that wet stuff was that fell in the month of May, you are forgiven. Following the previous 10 months of below normal precipitation, the emergence of an abundance of rain — yes, rain — was a strange but welcome sight to behold.  Nearly 4 1/2 inches of rain fell in...
