Snow Forces Cancellations At Miami’s Airport
MIAMI (CBS4) – More wickedly cold snowy weather up north is once again forcing flight cancellations across the country.
At Miami International Airport, spokesman Marc Henderson there had been a total of 38 flight cancellations; 25 departures and 13 arrivals. All of the canceled flights were to or from cities in the northeast including Philadelphia, Boston, Hartford and Washington DC. Henderson said seven arrivals and one departure was delayed by the snowy weather.
Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport spokesman Greg Myers said he did not know of any weather related cancellations.
Passengers are urged to check with their carrier before attempting to come to Miami International Airport due to the weather conditions throughout the Northeast and other parts of the country.
Many parts of the northeast have gotten more snow about a month into winter than they usually get all season. Hartford, Connecticut, which could get as much as a foot more from the latest storm, has already gotten 55 inches, compared with a 46-inch winter average. New York has gotten more than 36 inches of snow and Boston has had 50.
Schools closed or delayed starts around the region, including in parts of Tennessee, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., and New Jersey.
