Freezing drizzle is moving across eastern Iowa, making for very slick conditions in many areas and numerous crashes.
Multiple crashes and backups were being reported Wednesday morning on I-80 through Iowa, Johnson and Cedar counties. Slick conditions were also being reported on I-380 in Linn and Johnson counties.
Meteorologist Kaj O'Mara said to use extreme caution during the morning commute.
