Dangerous winter storm batters western U.S. as airport, highways shut down

A dangerous winter storm pummeled parts of the U.S. Rockies and western Plains with heavy snow on Sunday, shutting down Denver’s busy airport, stranding motorists and forcing the closure of major highways.

Snowfall and blizzard conditions were expected to continue until midnight local time in parts of Colorado, the National Weather Service said, and by evening three feet (1 meter) of snow had dropped in high-altitude areas.

In Cheyenne, Wyoming, about 26 inches (65.5 cm) of snow had fallen by noon, the National Weather Service reported, setting a new two-day record for the city.

“STAY HOME. YOU WILL BE STRANDED!” the agency’s Cheyenne office posted on Twitter.

The message was echoed by police agencies throughout the region, as National Guard soldiers rescued stuck motorists.
