first_imgStorms across the nation’s midsection delivered freezing cold and as much as 10 inches of snow by Thursday, bedeviling drivers on slippery roads and closing schools from Texas to Indiana. At least 10 people were killed in road wrecks in Kansas, Missouri and Kentucky over two days. In Texas, a mother and son died in a fire sparked by an improperly installed wood-burning stove. In Chicago, a Southwest Airlines jet trying to land in heavy snow Thursday evening slid off a runway at Midway International Airport, crashed through a fence and skidded into a busy street. No injuries were reported on the plane, but at least one person was seriously hurt in a vehicle on the ground, an official said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals The eastbound storm system was expected to leave a half-foot of snow in central Illinois and 3 to 5 inches in the Chicago area, where by late afternoon Thursday about 30 flights had been canceled at O’Hare International and Midway airports. In Indiana, dozens of schools dismissed students early, and community groups and churches canceled events, as many cities reported 4 to 6 inches of snow by evening. The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra promised that Thursday night’s “Yuletide Celebration” would go on, but it discounted tickets to attract stranded commuters. The heaviest snow – up to 10 inches – fell along the Interstate 35 corridor into Kansas City, said Greg Koch, a National Weather Service forecaster. Temperatures in the city fell into the single digits. The St. Louis region received 2 to 4 inches. Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Larry Plunkett said all three passengers in a sport utility vehicle were killed Thursday when it crossed a median on a snow-covered interstate near Charleston and struck a tractor-trailer head-on. Also in southeast Missouri, a Greyhound bus struck the rear of a state truck that was plowing a two-lane highway near Greenville. Plunkett said seven or eight passengers were hurt, but none of the injuries was life-threatening. Numerous vehicles slipped off roads or got into fender benders, troopers said. On a snow-packed interstate near Edgerton, Kan., a 31-year-old woman’s pickup slid across the median Wednesday and collided with another vehicle, killing her and her 4-year-old daughter, authorities said. “A lot of people aren’t slowing down,” said Judy Gilchrist, a spokeswoman for the Kansas Turnpike Authority. Schools in northern and central Texas were closed Thursday due to icy roads, and others scheduled later start times. The University of Texas at Austin canceled classes. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_img Tags: top FIFA World Cup qualifierUganda 1-0 EgyptOkwi wheels away in celebration after scoring the priceless goal against Egypt. Shaban Lubega.FOOTBALL–An unlikely empty Namboole Stadium did little to dampen the spirit of Uganda Cranes as they made home advantage count with a priceless 1-0 win over record African champions Egypt in a Russia 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifier Thursday.Tanzania-based striker Emmanuel Okwi scored the solitary goal six minutes into the second half after the Pharaohs had failed to clear their lines following a Faruku Miya corner kick.Egypt had a goal ruled out for offside when Muhamed Salah crossed for Hassan Mohmoud who flicked the ball past the steady gloves of Africa’s top-ranked goalkeeper Denis Onyango but the Egyptian celebration was cut short with the waving flag of the assistant referee, who adjudged on-rushing Soliman Mohmoud to have interfered with play from an offside position.That half time escape would prove crucial and Uganda made the most of it later having laboured and in the opening half although they did enough to contain the much heralded Pharaohs.The only clear cut chance Uganda had in the first half came courtesy of Okwi who connected first-time on the volley with a Joseph Ochaya long pass only for legendary Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary to parry the ball out of danger.Coming into the top of Group E clash, Egypt had not lost to Uganda since 1965 and were highly fancied to make the most of their professionals such as English based duo of Mohammed Salah of Lvierpool and El Neny of Arsenal count.But fame is one thing, Namboole is another. The Egyptian learnt this the hard way and if they had taken Uganda for granted prior, given even their late arrival for the match, they will be slapping themselves in the face and doing thorough post-mortem.The huff and puff and scoreless half time appeared to have awakened Egyptian Coach Hector Cuper out of his reverie as he realised Cranes were never to be taken for granted even after the departure of Milutin Sredojevic Micho just a month ago.Cuper, who made his name with Spanish side Valencia 16 years ago, made an immediate change at the start of the second half, throwing in Ahmed Ramadan Sohbi for the ineffective Hassan Mohmoud, but before his tactical change could sniff at the bumpy Namboole pitch, Uganda had taken the lead on 52 minutes.Egypt made a further two substitutions in the second half with Saliman Mohmoud and Terek Ahmed both coming off and replaced by Ahmed Amir and Salah Salah, respectively but could not inspire the Pharaohs to getting the elusive goal as Uganda stood firm in defence.“It was a difficult game on a poor pitch but we can go home and work on our mistakes so that we win the return leg on Tuesday.” said Egyptian coach Hector Cuper after the game.Uganda’s interim coach Moses Basena was full of praise for his players after the win.“All i can say is that am proud of the boys because we came into this game with several of them not having enough playing time but they got the result against a formidable opponent,” said Basena, who took over in interim role together with Fred Kajoba in the wake of Micho’s decision to wake out on Cranes.Basena and Kajoba were assistants to the Serbian.“We highly believe we can qualify for the world cup and today’s result will inspire us to go to Port Alexandria and fight for at least a point,” added Basena, who only last week appointed Express tactician Matia Lule and former Cranes inspirational skipper and defender Ibrahim Sekagya to his backroom staff.Uganda will now travel to Egypt for the return fixture on Tuesday before completing the campaign with games at Congo Brazzavile and Ghana (at home) in October.Egypt are now second on the log in Group E with six points, one behind leader Uganda. Congo Brazzaville, who are yet to pick a point, play Ghana away on Friday before they lock horns next week in Brazzaville.
