A winter storm dumped more than a foot of snow on Grandview with the most single-day snowfall the metro area has seen in nearly 30 years. The snow started falling Friday, January 11 and didn't stop until the evening of Saturday, January 12.
Public Works crews hit the roads Friday night at 8PM and have been working ever since. Today, they are working to clear the neighborhoods and side streets. Citizens can make life easier for snow plow drivers by NOT parking in the streets.
More than 2,800 customers are without power right now in Grandview. KCP&L is reporting a number of outages keep reoccurring in the same areas because of melting and refreezing snow. KCP&L crews are working around the clock to restore power and have help on the way from other utility companies in the region. At this time, there are no estimated times of restoration available, but crews are expected to be working through Monday to have power restored to the entire KC Metro. The Grandview branch of Mid-Continental Library serves as a warming center during regular business hours.
