Northeast storm cancels flights as commute begins

NEW YORK (AP) - A winter storm is snarling road travel and forcing airlines to delay and cancel flights up and down the East Coast.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey reported 675 canceled flights Wednesday morning at LaGuardia Airport. Kennedy Airport had 300 cancellations and Newark Liberty 440.

Every flight in and out of Boston's Logan Airport was delayed. Philadelphia's airport reported about 20 dozen canceled outbound flights and 100 canceled arrivals.

Plows and salt spreaders are hitting the streets after more than a foot of snow fell in some areas overnight. New York City schools are open but classes are canceled elsewhere. That includes Philadelphia, Boston and most of Connecticut.

New York officials scrambled to get roads ready for the morning commute after being heavily criticized for slow cleanup from a Dec. 26 blizzard.
