Check your flight: KC airport down to 1 runway

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Whiteout conditions from the winter storm lumbering through the region have reduced the Kansas City International Airport to a single runway.

Airport spokesman Joe McBride says some flights are getting in and out of Kansas City, but he expects the airport will close at some point as the snow continues to fall and conditions worsen.

Many flights have been canceled, and travelers were urged to check their flights before making the trek to the airport.

McBride says the whiteout conditions were so bad at mid-morning that maintenance crews could barely see each other.
