Heavy snow and slush has forced officials at Kansas City International Airport to close and cancel numerous flights. Airport spokesman Joe McBride says the runways were closed around 6:30 a.m. Sunday when testing showed conditions were too slick to safely operate planes.

The airport sees about 440 flights a day.

Four inches of snow had fallen at Kansas City International as of 10 a.m. Forecasters predict snow will continue well into the afternoon.
