DENVER -- The State EOC deployed Colorado National resources to help with rescues during the blizzard that hit much of the state, including the Denver metro area, on Wednesday.

The National Guard was deployed along Interstate 25 between between Surrey Ridge and Monument. Crews were also on Highway 83.

During the worst of the storm, the Red Cross and partners had 13 emergency warming centers. By midnight, most were closed.

The Red Cross says nearly 350 people were at the shelters.

Many vehicles were stranded on roads in the metro area, some remaining 24 hours later.
