GOODLAND, Kan. (AP) Numerous roads in northwest and north-central Kansas are partially or completely snow covered after a storm dumped more than 5 inches of snow across the region.
A stretch of Interstate 70 near the states western border with Colorado was open again this morning after temporarily closing Tuesday at the height of the storm. Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper Tod Hileman urged drivers in a tweet to Stay put, adding that it doesnt look like fun! Many travelers took the advice, filling hotels in the area.
The National Weather Service says some of the heaviest accumulations were in Goodland, where 7.5 inches fell, and north of the small village of McDonald, where 9.5 inches was on the ground.
