The storm's center was over Iowa and Nebraska on Thursday and will continue delivering unsafe weather conditions to 105 million people who are under some sort of watch, warning or advisory as it moves east and then north into Canada. The closure was reminiscent of historic flooding along the river in 2011 that saw segments of the interstate in western Iowa washed away.

Highways were also closed in the Nebraska Panhandle, South Dakota and near the Wyoming border on Thursday due to the storm.

Bria McKenzie, 22, said she and her mother, brother and sister were stuck in their vehicle for more than two hours on a hilly road in Colorado Springs.

It was caused by a combination of the jet stream and normal conditions in the wind shadow of the Rockies.

How do I get my stranded auto?

This weather phenomenon is being labeled a "bomb cyclone" by meteorologists and this happens when the atmosphere is experiencing bombogenesis.

Meteorologists referred to the storm as a "bomb cyclone", a winter hurricane that forms when the barometric pressure drops 24 millibars in 24 hours. Groves had gotten out of his patrol auto to check on another vehicle that had slid off the road, police said.
