MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — While the huge blizzard bearing down on the Midwest is largely bypassing Minnesota, the state is still being affected.

Airlines have canceled numerous flights at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Tuesday.

Airport spokesman Pat Hogan says the airlines haven’t provided figures, but he says the number is high, and they include flights to Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and other states to the south and east in the path of the storm –  at least 84.

Hogan says the airlines have been warning passengers ahead of time, but he still expects some travelers will be stuck Tuesday night.

Another storm dumped as much as 12 inches of snow on southern Minnesota Monday. Dozens of rural school districts are closed or starting classes two hours late Tuesday due to the blowing snow.
