  • Less than one week after one of the worst winter storms barreled through Missouri, a second storm brought several inches of snow to Pulaski County and much more across the state.
    In Pulaski County, the winter storm caused the Crocker, Dixon, Laquey, Richland, Swedeborg, and Plato districts to close on Wednesday. The Waynesville School District used snow routes for its busing system.
    Some parts of the lake of the Ozarks saw up to eight inches of snow, and the region saw downed power lines and damage from the weight of the heavy, slushy weather mix.
    Beginning shortly after midnight on Tuesday, scattered power outages left more than 11,000 customers in Miller, Morgan and Camden counties without electricity. County road crews worked with utility providers clearing snow to get equipment in to work on power lines.
    On Monday night, the Missouri Department of Transportation issued a rare "no travel" advisory, urging people to stay off highways unless absolutely needed.
    According to the Associated Press, the storm caused at least three deaths.
