KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Snow is falling fast and furious across parts of Missouri.
Across wide sections of northwest Missouri, whiteout conditions dropped visibility to a point that made driving too risky. The winds and heavy snow—falling as much as 2 inches per hour—removed buildings from view.
In Kansas City, the skyline disappeared behind a veil of snow. Flakes were falling so fast that plows trying to cross the city simply couldn’t keep up.
Kansas City was expected to get up to a foot of snow before the storm exits the region later Thursday. Areas north of the city could see more than a foot.
