The border at Emerson, Man., is open again after a storm in the United States left travellers stuck on the Canadian side earlier in the day Thursday.

A winter storm in the U.S.Thursday morning shut down Interstate 29 in North Dakota — which extends to Manitoba's Highway 75 — prompting the Canada Border Services Agency to temporarily close the crossing at Emerson.

The CBSA said the border reopened as of 1 p.m.

"Normal operations have now resumed for traveller traffic at the Emerson port of entry, which recently experienced a service disruption," reads the release.

"We thank you for your patience and for helping us to minimize the impact of this border service disruption."
