KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Authorities say a plane slid off an icy taxiway at Kansas City International Airport as a sprawling winter storm hit large sections of the Midwest and beyond.

The weather Friday has closed schools, universities and government offices.

The Delta Air Lines flight was taxiing to be de-iced before flying to Detroit when the nosegear slipped off a taxiway. A Delta spokeswoman says no injuries were reported.

National Weather Service winter weather advisories warn of hazardous travel conditions from the Plains into the Northeast through the weekend. The agency has issued a blizzard warning for parts of the Upper Midwest.
