A swirling mass of moist air from the Gulf of Mexico met a mass of cold air to create this four-day ice storm. Ice coated everything from trees to cars to roads; in parts of central Kansas, a layer of ice nearly an inch thick covered the ground. The storm damaged trees and power lines, leading to widespread power outages across both Kansas and Oklahoma before dissipating. At least 15 people died from the effects of the storm.
