The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) says that high winds are causing major issues for truck drivers traveling on I-80 in the central part of the state.

Around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 7, NSP said that high winds are affecting truck travel on I-80.

“Multiple semis have overturned in the wind and blowing dust is causing visibility issues in some areas,” troopers said. “Good idea to find a safe place to park for a bit if you’re in a high profile vehicle.”

NSP says that several drivers have parked along the shoulder of I-80 and they’re working to get those vehicles to the nearest exit to a place where they can park safely.

“For safety reasons, don’t park on the shoulder of I-80,” NSP said.
