One person was killed and more than 70 had to be taken to hospitals as the result of a pile-up on Interstate 41.

  Buses were being used to transport people off the interstate and to several warming shelters.  Gusting winds created zero visibility on the interstate Sunday morning playing a role in the smash-up involving 131 vehicles.  The Wisconsin Department of Transportation closed the southbound lanes.  Blizzard conditions closed several more roads around Wisconsin.
