MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Passengers bound for New York and New Jersey are stuck at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport because of an East Coast blizzard.

Twin Cities airport spokesman Patrick Hogan says the blizzard has canceled all flights from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to New York and Newark, N.J., until at least late afternoon Monday and potentially for the rest of the day.

Hogan tells the Star Tribune there is also "a smattering of cancellations" for flights bound for other parts of the Northeast.

Hogan says it appears few - if any - direct flights between the Twin Cities airport and airports in New York and Newark will happen Monday. He says anyone heading to those destinations should check with their airline before driving to the airport.
