LIVE BLOG: How winter weather is affecting mid-Missouri
COLUMBIA - As snow moves in, different mid-Missouri agencies are warning people about the storm's impact.
The City of Columbia is asking residents not to park on priority routes. The city also discouraged travel. A 16 person plow crew was deployed.
The City of Sedalia declared a snow emergency. Parking is prohibited along emergency snow routes so emergency vehicles and snow plows can pass through.
Closings are updated here.
