Midwestern Winter Storm Plows Into Missouri

The second storm to batter the nation’s midsection in less than a week has knocked out power to more than 100,000 homes and businesses. And it’s now blamed for at least three deaths.

Authorities say two people were killed in rollovers on Interstate 70 in Kansas, while in Oklahoma a person died when a roof gave way under heavy snow.

The storm dumped more than a foot of snow on parts of Oklahoma yesterday, and high winds caused whiteout conditions that slowed road-clearing efforts.

Schools and major highways in the Texas Panhandle are closed for a second day.

Flights in and out of Kansas City International Airport began to resume this morning. But the Missouri Department of Transportation has issued a “no travel” advisory, asking people to stay off affected highways except in case of a dire emergency.

Even Missouri’s heavy-duty snowplows are having trouble staying on the roads. The Kansas City Star reports that at least eight Missouri Department of Transportation snowplows fell into highway ditches.
