Midwest Blizzard Disrupts Air and Road Traffic
Already weary from weeks of snow, the second monster whiteout in a week dumped about a foot of snow in some parts of Oklahoma. In anticipation of the storm, Will Rodgers World Airport in Oklahoma City cancelled arriving flights on Tuesday night as well as originating flights Wednesday morning. Approximately 50 arrivals and departures were cancelled, and many streets across the state are still packed with snow.
Heavy snow has also been reported in Arkansas, Kansas and Texas as the blizzard makes its way across the nation's midsection.
In Texas, the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport canceled about 120 departures. Spokesman David Magana tells the Wall Street Journal the airport plans to operate a full schedule once conditions improve late Wednesday.
"It's not predicted to snow here until about six o'clock this evening," Bonnie A. Wilson, CEO of Jackson Municipal Airport tells AOL Travel News. "We've had about four cancellations already, but that number is expected to change."
Most airlines are waiving change fees in the wake of the storm. Travelers who need to change reservations should contact their airline by phone or make changes on the carrier's website.
