State and federal teams have begun assessing the damage in Kansas from winter storms that hit the state in February.

The Kansas Division of Emergency Management says the crews began fanning out across the state March 11.

Kansas has asked the Federal Emergency Management Agency for damage assessments in 41 of the state's 105 counties.

The storms hit Kansas over a 10-day period, leaving more than 2 feet of snow in some areas and contributing to six deaths.

State officials said the costs incurred by various units of government include snow removal and debris cleanup.
