Kansas City Area Residents Asked To Report Only Injury Crashes - Park Off The Streets Due To Blizzard

In KC-MO- police are NOT responding to non-injury crashes now and probably for the next 12-18 hours.

All Emergency Snow Ordinances and Snow Route parking restrictions and travel are in effect.

Even in neighborhoods- try to refrain from street parking so plow crews can get through Wednesday morning.

There's been car crashes- truck crashes-jack-knifes- lots of vehicles "slide-off" of the roads everywhere in the Metro.

I-70 was "closed westbound" in Leavenworth county KS at 1:48 p.m.

I-70 is also closed east of Kansas City MO. and travel to Columbia - St. Louis is not possible.

An apartment fire injured a person at the Westbrooke Apartments near 75th Street and Flint just after 1 p.m..

Other more minor structure fires have been reported in KC & Liberty MO..

Some EMS units are already getting stuck in the snow running calls in south KC-MO..

All other emergency responses by police- fire & EMS units will be greatly slowed until the storm winds down Wednesday morning.

Trash pickups in KC-MO for Wednesday will also be delayed a day- Channel 2.

More as it comes in.....
