Wichita U.S. Interstate 70 in western Kansas was closed Friday morning after a storm battered the area with snow and high winds.
The Transportation Department says the highway reopened in both directions about noon. It had been closed from Hays to the Colorado border earlier Friday because of hazardous driving conditions.
Up to five inches of snow had fallen in that area and 50 mile-per-hour winds were reported.
There were no reports of major damage or injuries from the storm.
