Windom Area Schools released for the day at 9:45 a.m., but the Citizen has been informed that some Windom school buses have given notification they are turning around and heading back to school with students due to whiteout conditions in rural areas around Windom.
Other buses are progressing with their drop-offs of students, but are slowed considerably due to the poor visibility.
The area is in a winter weather advisory due to the strong winds, which are creating blowing and drifting snow in the area.
More information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
