KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- As more people get on the roads to get to work, it's going to become even more treacherous on Thursday morning.

Wind gusts greater than 50 mph in some parts of the FOX 4 viewing area are making it dangerous and slow.

Please take it seriously. Buckle up! Put your phone away and have no distractions.

At 6:15 a.m., FOX 4's Nick Vasos said:

  • Northbound I-29 closed at I-435- semis can't get up hill
  • Southbound 435 at Winner Road-- very slow
  • Westbound I-70 into city- extremely slow.
  • Southbound 635 from Missouri to K-5 was closed but reopened, but it still extremely slow.

IN SUMMARY, nearly every highway and roadway is moving slowly--- and should be!

Proceed with caution.

Additionally, there are many flight delays. Check for flight information.
