Spring snowstorm hits central states, pushes east

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A wide-ranging storm is burying thoughts of springtime weather across a number of Midwestern states under a blanket of snow and slush, leaving in its wake dashed Palm Sunday plans, dozens of canceled flights and treacherous roadways as it churns eastward.

The National Weather Service says the storm was expected to dump 6 to 10 inches of snow over central Indiana before moving into Ohio.

People in states as far west as Colorado are digging out, and officials blamed two deaths in separate crashes in Kansas and Missouri on slick roads.

The St. Louis area saw some of the highest totals, with as much as 14 inches in some areas by late Sunday.
