A semi accident has blocked both west bound lanes of traffic on Homestake Pass. The Montana Department of Transportation says that the Montana Highway Patrol is on the scene of the accident. It's reported that black ice is covering the road in that area.

Wind caused power outages in the Flathead and Swan Valley this morning and blown down trees were blocking the highway near Columbia Falls. Westbound travel out of Missoula looks pretty good, check the road conditions before you head eastbound out of town for the holiday weekend.
