WHITEHALL — The Trempealeau County Highway Department has declared a snow emergency.

According to a news release from the department:

With the amount of blowing and drifting, personnel are unable to keep up with snow removal on all roads, including major U.S. and state highways. Many roads are drifted shut and not passable.

The department is pulling its trucks off the roads, so conditions are only going to get worse.

Travel is not advised.
