The Kansas Division of Emergency Management has activated the state's Emergency Operations Center to monitor tonight's winter storm and stay in contact with local emergency managers.
Kansas Governor Sam Brownback issued the following statement with some words of advice for residents:
"We ask you to stay off the road unless it's absolutely critical. If you have to be out, be prepared with a charged cell phone, an emergency kit with food, water, blankets, flares and a shovel."
The Missouri Department of Transportation has been preparing for this storm and is asking all drivers to stay home unless it's an emergency, saying less cars means faster clean-up for crews.
