Fewer flights cancelled at OIA because of snow

ORLANDO INT’L AIRPORT –  Airlines appear to be flying up north again, a day after an early snowstorm shut down major airports. We checked with OIA, and only one flight was listed as cancelled — to Hartford, CT. Most of the other flights appeared to be on time.

More than 3.2 million homes and businesses have been without electricity from Maryland to Maine. The 750,000 who lost power in Connecticut broke a state record set two months ago — when the remnants of Hurricane Irene hit. The snowstorm is also blamed for three deaths, including a Massachusetts man electrocuted by a downed wire. The storm smashed record snowfall totals for October, from the 1.3 inches in New York’s Central Park to the 27 inches that piled up in Plainfield, Mass. Snow and downed trees have also caused travel problems, from airport delays to suspended rail service. An Amtrak train from Chicago to Boston got stuck overnight in Palmer, Mass., forcing the 48 passengers to finish their trip by bus. ————————————————— The Associated Press contributed to this report.
