Draco Storm Updates LIVE: Iowa Police Urge Drivers to Stay Off Roads

3 people have died in a 25-car pileup on I-35 southbound at the 150 mile marker near the border of Hamilton and Wright Counties, police officials said Thursday.

There was also a multiple-vehicle crash on I-80 near the town of Grinnell. Several trucks were involved and the eastbound lanes are apparently completely blocked.

In an interview with KCCI, Iowa State Patrol Colonel David Garrison pleaded with Iowans to stay off the roads. There is near-zero visibility, making for extremely dangerous driving conditions, according to officials.
