North Dakota -

The Army Corps of Engineers denied easement of the Dakota Access Pipeline, but protesters say they plan to stick around. 

The weather has turned into blizzard-like conditions. The 10-mile drive from the Standing Rock encampment to Fort Yates is typically a 15 minute drive, but took KULR-8's Greg LaMotte nearly 3 hours to complete.

Protester, Monica Reyes, says, "I haven't been in weather like this in a long time, it's kind of awesome, but it's a nine. It's really bad out there."
