Blizzard batters U.S. heartland, spreads snowy mess into the Midwest – Kansas City Mayor Sly James weighs in

A historic blizzard which hit the Midwest is the the second major storm to hit the region in less than one week. People have been killed, one on an icy road in Kansas. The other at a home in Oklahoma – where the roof collapsed under the weight of the snow.

Winter Storm Warnings are in effect as far as Illinois, as this massive system tracks north and east with Kansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, and Michigan next on its hit list.

Kansas City Mayor Sly James joins "Early Start" by phone to discuss the latest developments in this historic blizzard that is hiting the Midwest.

James says, “We are fortunate that we’ve got a great crew of people out working with us, and they’ve been out on the road for quite some time to keep things as clear as possible, but we’re monitoring the situation." He adds, "We’re doing everything we can. We’ve got a great group of citizens who are heading our warnings, at least so far, and trying to stay off the roads, stay at home, and that helps quite a bit. We’ll get through this.”

    Your coverage of the Jodi Arias trial is excellent however the amount of commercials are excessive.. Your airtime consists of mainly self promoting CNN advertising for your programs, followed by sponsor paid advertising and lastly live coverage.
