Meanwhile, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, who declared a disaster emergency for 44 counties, planned Wednesday to fly over the hard-hit area to get a firsthand look at the extent of damage.

The storm also had led to the deaths of some ranchers' livestock, as animals either froze to death or asphyxiated as snow became packed in their nostrils.

Haskell County Commissioner Gene Ochs said dead cattle were piling up in feedlots in his far southwestern Kansas county.
