Kansas gets record snowfall as millions in Midwest clean up after storm – Erin McPike reports


(CNN) - Kansas got the brunt of the snow as a winter storm moved past, heading toward the Northeast.

Wichita saw its second-highest storm snowfall total on record with 14.2 inches over two days, the weather service said.
Some parts of the state saw even more snow, and Missouri was not far behind, with accumulations of around a foot in some places.

The snow set a record at Kansas City International Airport with 9 inches falling in a single day. The old record was 5.1 inches set in 2010. The airport closed down Thursday.

Some businesses and universities were shut down as state officials urged residents to stay off the roads.

This morning on "Early Start," CNN's Erin McPike reports on Kansas's efforts to clean up after record snowfall.
