MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – A major winter storm moving across the region is expected to drop roughly 6 inches of snow on parts of Kansas and Missouri, and the storm is already causing travel problems.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a section of westbound Interstate 70 near Manhattan closed Sunday morning after a crash involving three semitrailer trucks and two other vehicles blocked the road.

A section of westbound I-70 also closed near O’Fallon, Missouri, after several crashes.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of eastern Kansas, Missouri and part of Illinois Sunday.

The snow is expected to continue falling throughout Sunday.
