There are numerous accidents across the region due to icy conditions.

If you take a look at the live traffic map on the KMOV app you can see that I-44 is slow going or jammed from 270 to Cuba, Missouri.

On I-55, the problems keep growing with a jam that extends all the way south past Festus.

Westbound on I-70 the jam extends nearly all the way to Columbia.

The sheriff's department in Franklin County is urging residents to stay inside and off the roads because conditions are so bad.
