“We are responding to multiple slides and a couple of single vehicle crashes. Nothing with injuries right now. We are mostly experiencing it on Highway 20 from Ashton North. We have two (crashes) on the bridge at the Madison-Jefferson county line and one over Highway 31 right now,” Idaho State Police Lt. Marvin Crain said around 5 p.m.

Crain told that a state patrol vehicle was struck in the Idaho Falls area. There is minimal damage and no injuries.

He said people should always be prepared with an emergency kit in case they have water and a blanket to keep warm.

“If it’s not a necessity to be on these roads tonight, just enjoy your home and family and head out after the storm passes and the roads are cleared,” Crain said.
