Winter Weary Central Plains States Getting Walloped Again
"Another blizzard bore down on the nation's midsection early Tuesday after lashing the Texas Panhandle with hurricane-force winds, closing highways and cutting power to thousands in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas," The Associated Press writes. It adds that "at least two people were killed in the storm, and Midwesterners still digging out from last week's deep snowpack braced for more."
The National Weather Service warns that "moderate to heavy snow will continue to fall across the central Plains during the day on Tuesday, moving into the southern Great Lakes by the evening. Freezing rain is possible in north-central Illinois, northern Indiana and northwestern Ohio, as well as across the Appalachians."
According to The Kansas City Star, "the second major winter storm in less than a week is expected to continue through this afternoon, dropping at least 6 to 10 inches of snow on top of a city still weary from the last one. Greater snowfall, as much as 15 inches, is possible south of Kansas City and eastward through central Missouri."
Our colleagues at Kansas City Public Media write that "outages have been reported in parts of Northern Missouri, around the Chillicothe area. Some spotty power dropouts are reported around Kansas City. The winter storm is holding up to predictions of 24 hours earlier."
