Seattle Still Reeling From Ice Storm; More Flights Delayed or Canceled


The arrival and departure message boards at the Boise Airport look about the same today as they did on Thursday: The majority of air traffic in and out of Seattle is again delayed or canceled.

A major ice storm crippled Seattle Thursday, leaving nearly a quarter of a million people without power. Sea-Tac airport was officially shut down Thursday so that its three runways could be de-iced. Hundreds of flights were canceled, resulting in snaking lines of passengers hovering around each airline ticket counter.

As of this morning, the earliest flight from Seattle to Boise is scheduled to arrive early this afternoon.
