Travel this morning already a problem in West, Mid-West

TOPEKA, KAN. (AP) _ A major winter storm is hitting the nation's midsection, knocking out power and creating a great big mess for holiday travel.

The worst of the storm is expected to hit the region today and tomorrow, bringing heavy snow, sleet, and rain to a large swath of the plains and the midwest.

A foot or two of snow is possible in some areas.

The National Weather Service issued blizzard warnings early today for Kansas, Western North Dakota, and Northern Missesota.

Already this morning, nearly 100 scheduled flights from Minneapolis-St. Paul International have been delayed or canceled, along with about 60 flights out of Midway.
