3/18/2013 Minnesota Winter Storm & Blizzard B-Roll Footage

This is a combo video from all of the footage that I shot on Monday.

From the start of this footage until the 3:20 time frame is video from along Interstate 94 around Alexandria, MN where the blizzard has created dangerous driving conditions to the point where the Minnesota State Patrol has shut down the interstate to all traffic from Alexandria to the Moorhead, MN near the North Dakota state line.

The warning to all drivers said: I-94: Road closed.  between the start of I-94 (near Moorhead) and MN 127 (near Alexandria). The road is closed. Be prepared for heavy snow. Look out for drifting snow on the roadway. Visibility is reduced.

B-Roll shot along interstate 94 as I drove into the city. Footage shows the road closed signs, nasty driving conditions, snow plows and a rest stop that was full of semi trucks.

In the next scene from the 3:20 to 8:30 time frame is B-roll footage of the winter storm hitting the Minneapolis, MN area.


Bulk of the footage shot in downtown Minneapolis on the Nicollet Mall of people walking in the wind driven snow while going to work. Additional traffic shots shot in Interstate 94 in the metro area.

From the 8:30 to the end of the video is more of the powerful winter storm is still pounding central Minnesota this afternoon. Travel was not advised on parts of Interstate 94 and the interstate was still closed from Moorhead, MN to Alexandria.

B-Roll footage of white out conditions, blowing snow, snow plows, road closed signs and general nasty winter weather in MN.
