TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ State offices in the western two-thirds of Kansas are closed as the state prepares for its second major storm in less than a week.

Gov. Sam Brownback said Sunday that the offices will be closed at least through 6 a.m. Thursday. His administration will decide Monday whether to close the remaining offices in the state.

The governor also extended the state of emergency he declared when the first storm hit Kansas last week.

Brownback said the Kansas Department of Transportation has its equipment and supplies ready for a storm that is forecast to dump between 8 and 24 inches across the state.

The state emergency operations center was activated Sunday and will remain operational on a 24-hour basis until further notice.
