PHILADELPHIA - All four runways at Philadelphia's airport are open again after being closed by the region's snowstorm. But most of the airport's flights are still canceled because of problems elsewhere. Throughout the northeast, thousands of flights were canceled today, on top of the more than 3,000 that were canceled yesterday. Hundreds of people spent the night at the New York area airports. It could take days to get all of the stranded travelers to their destinations.
BOSTON - Things are slowly returning to normal in Boston as the powerful winter storm winds down. According to the National Weather Service, Boston neighborhoods reported between 12 and 18 inches of snow from the storm. The city's mayor is getting ready to lift the snow emergency and parking ban.
MOSCOW - Thousands are stranded in Moscow airports after icy rains caused blackouts and food shortages. The freezing rain in the Russian capital over the weekend grounded planes and damaged power transmission lines. The Russian Tourism Association says some 20,000 passengers have had their flights delayed. Airport authorities claim the number is in the low thousands.
