Flights Canceled In New York As Storm Dumps More Snow In Northeast


Just weeks after a blizzard halted planes and dumped mounds of snow on the Northeast, travelers in New York and New England will get an encore Wednesday with more snow expected and flight cancellations piling up.

A winter storm that turned roads into ice rinks in the Southeast this week could leave 12 to 16 inches of snow in Boston and 8 to 12 inches of snow in New York City by late Wednesday.

Meanwhile, most domestic flights at John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark Liberty airports are cancelled through early afternoon Wednesday, said Ron Marsico, spokesman for The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Officials declared a "weather emergency" and advised motorists to stay off the roads. The move restricts parking and allows authorities to remove vehicles that block roadways or impede snow plows.

The city of Philadelphia declared a snow emergency Tuesday night, while public schools in Boston will be closed Wednesday because of the predicted snowfall.

Nonemergency state employees don't have to report to work Wednesday, according to a statement from Massachusetts.
