TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A winter snowstorm has closed several universities and school districts in Kansas as crews work to clear the roads.

The National Weather Service says the storm dumped from 2 to 14 inches from late Saturday through Sunday across a large swath of the state. As the storm hit, Gov. Jeff Colyer declared a state of emergency.

The Kansas Department of Transportation was reporting several road closures today, mostly in the extreme northeast corner of the state. But crews managed to clear Interstate 70 enough to reopen the east-west route.
