VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

MANY SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN KANSAS ARE ALREADY CLOSED ON TUESDAY AND A STATE OF EMERGENCY IS IN EFFECT IN KANSAS CITY, AS A HUGE WINTER STORM MOVES INTO THE AREA.

SOUNDBITE (KTKA) GOV. SAM BROWNBACK / (R) KANSAS

'This one has a potential in a number of areas in our state to be much more severe than even the last one and we don't have the margins we had last time. The ditches are full of snow, so you can't throw it off as quick or as easy.'

TRACK-2

PARTS OF KANSAS ARE PREPARING FOR ANYWHERE BETWEEN EIGHT INCHES AND TWO FEET OF SNOW BY TUESDAY MORNING.

THE STORM DROPPED HUGE AMOUNTS OF SNOW ON NORTH TEXAS AND OKLAHOMA ON MONDAY.

AMARILLO RECORDED 19 INCHES OF SNOW, JUST SHORT OF A TEXAS RECORD FOR SNOWFALL IN A 24-HOUR PERIOD.

POWERFUL WINDS, INCLUDING A 75-MILE AN HOUR GUST, MADE CONDITIONS EVEN MORE UNBEARABLE.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE REPORTED THAT AT ONE POINT UP TO 100 VEHICLES WERE STRANDED ON INTERSTATE 27 IN TEXAS.

THE SNOW FORCED OFFICIALS IN OKLAHOMA TO CLOSE ALL HIGHWAYS IN THE PANHANDLE AND MUCH OF THE STATE'S NORTHWEST.

SNOW CAUSED A ROOF TO COLLAPSE, KILLING ONE PERSON IN OKLAHOMA.

ONE TRAFFIC DEATH IN KANSAS IS BLAMED ON THE SNOW.

THOUSANDS OF HOMES AND BUSINESSES LOST POWER THROUGHOUT THE REGION.
