Emergency personnel worked about 130 accidents in a roughly 24-hour period starting Saturday afternoon as Wichitans adjusted to snow-packed roads.
A Sedgwick County 911 dispatch supervisor estimated there were that many accidents between roughly 2:30 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
Snowfall at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport totaled 3.2 inches, said National Weather Service meteorologist Ken Cook.
The emergency accident reporting plan was in effect for a while but had been canceled by Sunday, Wichita Police Department Sgt. Scott Brunow said.
Never miss a local story.
Other parts of the state saw much more snow. The storm dumped as much as 13.5 inches in Great Bend, Cook said.
“There was a swath of a foot of snow that went from there up to Salina,” he said. “There was a whole bunch of ice across central Kansas and into southeast Kansas.”
Cook estimated an overnight low of 3 degrees Sunday night in the Wichita area and said the high Monday would be in the high teens to 20. Lows Monday night will be about 4 degrees, he said.
