Gov. Sam Brownback says his fellow Kansas residents appear to be heeding his warning against traveling during a storm that is piling up snow.
Brownback said Thursday that state officials expect the snow to continue until midnight. He said travel on the state's highways appears to be light because of the weather.
The governor said travel is especially treacherous in metro areas and motorists who do venture out in cities should expect to get stuck.
He also said the state has been fortunate because it only about 200 people had lost power as of Thursday morning.
The governor told reporters during a briefing that officials were watching potentially icy conditions in both southeast and southwest Kansas.
