"We're anticipating still more snow through today, so we're asking motorists to stay home until the roads are cleared", said Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Collin Stosberg, stationed in suburban Kansas City.

Metro areas that are included in warnings are Kansas City, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Washington D.C., Roanoke and Greensboro - these areas are most likely to see risky travel conditions and heavy snow and/or ice according to The Weather Channel.

Authorities in Kansas and Missouri reported at least three people killed in each state, majority in vehicle accidents. Snow is covering roads and making driving risky. They included a woman and her 14-year-old stepdaughter whose vehicle slid into the path of a semitrailer in Clinton, about 80 miles southeast of Kansas City, on Friday, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said. Another woman died when her auto slid on USA 24 in northern Missouri and was hit by an oncoming SUV.

In Kansas, the Highway Patrol says a 62-year-old man died after his pickup truck skidded on the Kansas Turnpike and hit a concrete barrier.

Those who must travel are being urged to carry a winter storm survival kit in case of emergency.

"We have a strong snowstorm that's stretching 1,400 miles from Kansas to the East Coast", CNN meteorologist Haley Brink said.
