Storm Dumps 20 Inches of Snow

KSAL StaffNovember 18, 2015

COLBY, Kan. (AP) – A heavy winter storm dumped more than a foot of snow in northwest Kansas, forcing the closure of at least one area highway.

The National Weather Service says the heaviest snowfall was from Atwood to Colby, where about 20 inches of snow was recorded early Wednesday. Heavy snowfall was also reported in Sharon Springs, which got about a foot of snow, and Goodland, which recorded about 7 inches of snow.

The Kansas Department of Transportation says a section of U.S. Highway 36 west of Atwood was closed Wednesday because of the weather. U.S. Interstate 70 in western Kansas reopened earlier Wednesday after being closed Tuesday during the storm.

The Thomas County Sheriff’s Department says there have been several reports of cars sliding off roads, but no injuries have been reported.
