What has been called a “historic blizzard” has hit the Texas Panhandle and Oklahoma, while parts of Kansas and Missouri are also under winter storm warnings. The storm dropped between two and three inches of snow an hour, while wind gusts of 60 miles an hour downed trees and knocked out power in areas across the region.
The storm is expected to reach south central Kansas today, where slowing winds should lessen the white-out dangers that some Texas motorists faced. However, some parts of Kansas can expect more than a foot of snow.
At present, PPB Newslink has not heard of any delays or other issues from industry members affected by the storm. Please report closures, damage or other effects of the storm to firstname.lastname@example.org.
