A historic winter storm whipped across the central Plains and Midwest early Tuesday, creating near whiteout conditions.
“Do not travel! Stay inside!” the National Weather Service warned. “Strong winds and blinding snow will make travel nearly impossible. This is a life threatening storm.”
The National Weather Service forecast blizzard conditions across portions of eight states, from Oklahoma to Michigan. Winds gusting to 40 mph are expected.
Oklahoma was under a state of emergency and Missouri mobilized 600 National Guard troops to help cope with Mother Nature’s onslaught.
Emergency personnel in Oklahoma City, St. Louis and Chicago, among other locales, vowed they were prepared to weather the storm. The leaders of several states, many of which have already had a difficult winter, also commandeered their forces even as they urged people to stay home.
