The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources warned residents across the state today that, despite frigid temperatures in recent days, there is no safe ice for walking or vehicle travel.


The DNR also issued a special plea for parents and others to be especially watchful of children near newly formed ice on ponds, creeks and lakes.

The DNR said that there is no ice in the state consistently 4 inches or more thick, which the agency recommends for safe walking.
