Kansas transportation authorities say people in much of the state should just stay home.
Heavy snow has fallen across nearly all of Kansas with accumulations expected to reach more than a foot in some areas.
The Kansas Department of Transportation said about 11 a.m. Thursday that eastbound Interstate 70 near Maple Hill, Interstate 35 in Franklin and Lyons counties and other roads in the Kansas City metropolitan area are closed because of drifting snow and slide-offs. Several semi-trailer trucks are stuck on U.S. 54 in Kiowa County, making it mostly impassable.
The Kansas Turnpike Authority also encouraged people to stay off the turnpike on the entire route from Oklahoma to Kansas City.
