Many Helping Hands in Storm Rescue Efforts in Minnesota

(TNS) - This weekend’s storm has meant long hours for emergency personnel as numerous stranded motorists were in need of rescuing.

According to Mower County, Minn., Sheriff Steve Sandvik, preliminary numbers indicate that over 150 vehicles were abandoned throughout Mower County during the storm.

Many of those vehicles contained people in need of rescue.

The severity of the storm became apparent after a deputy’s squad car and a snowplow sent to rescue a stranded woman and her grandchild both got stuck Saturday night six miles north of Austin. Sandvik had to call in a road grader to get them out.
