— Another blizzard is battering the nation's midsection today as Midwesterners are still digging out from last week's storm.
Thousands of customers were left without power as the storm moved in after lashing the Texas Panhandle with hurricane-force winds. Amarillo, Texas picked up 19 inches of snow.
Many Kansas school districts have canceled classes today with forecasters predicting accumulations of 8 to 24 inches of snow across the state.
Up to 15 inches of snow or more are forecast for parts of western Missouri.
At least two deaths are being blamed on the storm. A man in Kansas died after his SUV hit an icy patch on Interstate 70 in Kansas. And a person died in Oklahoma after a roof gave way under thick snow.
Kansas City, Mo., Mayor Sly James declared a state of emergency, and flights in and out of Kansas City International Airport have been canceled.
Drought experts say the precipitation is helpful but doesn't mean the drought is over.
