BNVN Weather Paparazzi Justin King was out to document the bad roads around Loveland, CO this morning.

Daytime temps hovering in the single digits are making driving hazardous everywhere and overnight lows are expected to be well below zero tonight and tomorrow. Video also shows EMS and Fire dept crews slipping and sliding while walking on the pavement.

The City Hall in St. Cloud, MN was on lock-down this afternoon. Saint Cloud police Lt.. Jerry Edblad said police were searching the building after an employee spotted someone near an air duct opening with a blanket who ran from the building when they were spotted.

Lt. Edblad said about 80 people work in the building and were evacuated late Wednesday to the Saint Cloud Civic Center while police continued to search City Hall this afternoon. Saint Cloud police are currently looking for two suspects. One is a black male with a goatee, 20 to 30 years old with a slender build, about 6 feet tall and wearing a black hat or black hooded sweatshirt.

Mayor Dave Kleis said City Hall has been evacuated while police search the building for the second possible burglary suspect and will remain closed for the rest of the day.

The Mayor said there have been two break-ins at City Hall over both holiday weekends in which some equipment and food was taken. There are also two two safes in City Hall that were also unsuccessfully broken into.

Just after 3:30 p.m. this afternoon, Lt. Jerry Edblad said most of the search was completed off but officers were still using thermal imaging equipment in the basement to search the air ducts.
