MSP Returning To Normal After Major Winter Storm
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Things are slowing getting back to normal at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after a major winter storm dropped more than a foot of snow there by Monday morning.
Airport spokeswoman Melissa Scovronski says the airport was down to one working runway early Monday, but expects to open a second soon because the worst of the storm has passed.
She says that should cut into the delays, which are now running more than an one hour for some flights.
She says about 60 departures and 100 arrivals were canceled Monday morning, but she’s not expecting more.
The 12.30 inches of snow at the airport was the fourth highest total in the metro area. Eden Prairie was tops at 17 inches with Bloomington a close second at 16 inches.
