State Weathers Storm, More To Come

State officials say that Kansas residents weathered the snowstorm that dropped more than a foot of snow in some areas, though the danger from cold temperatures remains.

Gov. Sam Brownback says Thursday that residents heeded warnings to prepare for the storm and to stay off the roads earlier this week to allow crews to clear the way.

Three people died in traffic accidents during the storm. The Kansas Highway Patrol says troopers worked 11 injury accidents statewide.

Brownback was joined at the news conference by Transportation Secretary Mike King, Deputy Emergency Management Director Angee Morgan and Highway Patrol Maj. John Eichkorn (EYE’-korn).

The storm prompted Brownback to close state offices in Shawnee County on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Legislature also canceled all of its meetings for those two days.
