Tens of thousands remain without power in Kansas City after winter storm

Kansas City Power & Light says more than 45,000 customers still had no power Monday morning.

KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) — Tens of thousands remain without power and at least three people were killed in Missouri in a winter storm.

The storm hit the Midwest and mid-Atlantic region Friday, dumping more than a foot of snow across parts of Missouri. Kansas City Power & Light says more than 45,000 customers still had no power Monday morning.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 53-year-old Deann Phillips and 14-year-old Olivia Phillips were killed Friday when their vehicle lost control on a snow-covered roadway and collided with a tractor-trailer on Missouri 7 in Clinton.

The patrol says 32-year-old Hope Wilson also was killed Friday when she lost control of a car on a snowy stretch of U.S. 24 and slid into the path of an oncoming sport utility vehicle in Carroll County.
